I am starting to get really annoyed with this problem!
One day, I logged on to my Windows XP Proffesional Service Pack 2 (recently installed) computer, and all of a sudden that annoying bubbler pops up from the system tray telling me that Automatic Updates is turned off.
Oh that's easy, I thought, just click te bubble, and click TURN ON AUTOMATIC UPDATES, then it should be sorted.
BUT BEING A BLEEPING COMPUTER, something was bound to go wrong!
I have followed the guides from Microsoft and the other thousands of users that have suffered from this flaw, but none work.
I have tried all te fiddling around with Services, and enabling AU and BITS and whatnot...tried many different tools available like Dial-a-fix and WURP, even Microsoft's own AU Repair Agent, but with no avail.
I restart my computer and everything after running all these rereshing applications, but as soon as I try to turn AU on, it comes up with that 'helpful' tip that you may need to go into services blah blah been there done that got the ******* t-shirt! Also I have noticed the error 1058 or 1508 - something like that crop up in that help box every now and again, but NOTHING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!! I have actually had nightmares about that pop-up bubble telling me that Automatic Updates are turned off. HHEELLPP!
