I can't get my Automatic Update to turn on. I've gone through everything.
Start, Run, Double-click auto update blah, blah, blah......... These pop-ups
are driving me crazy. What do I do?

RE: Windows Security Alert
Hello Irishmuffin,

Check this:,


Start/Run

Type "services.msc"

Click "OK"


Please check the following are started:


1.Automatic Updªtes

2.Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS)

3.Cryptographic Services

4.Remote Procedure Call (RPC)

5.System Restore Service


To verify that BITS is correctly configured :


1. Double-click `Background Intelligent Transfer Service.`

2. In the Startup type box, click Manual, and then Apply.

3. Click the `Log On` tab, and then verify that the service is enabled in
every hardware profile that you have listed. If the service is disabled in
one or more hardware profiles, click the hardware profile, Enable, and then
Apply.

4. Click the General tab and then Start.

If BITS starts successfully, visit the Windows Update Web site or the
Microsoft Update Web site to see if you can obtain updates. If it works OK,
change (2.) to automªtic.

Does this look familar? =>

There's a very strong possibility that you have a Vundo infection, which is
usually accompanied by ZLOB and/or SDBot infections, all of which are
protected by a rootkit.

Run a thorough check for hijackware, including posting your hijackthis log
to an appropriate forum.

When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
(http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe) is the preferred tool to use (in
conjuction with some other utilities). HijackThis will NOT fix anything on
its own, but it will help you to both identify and remove any
hijackware/spyware with assistance from an expert. **Post your log to
http://spywarehammer.com/simplemachi...php?board=10.0,
http://forums.spybot.info/forumdisplay.php?f=22,
http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30, or another appropriate forum for review
by an expert in such matters, not here.**

If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.
