This problem started about a month or two ago. Whenever I log into my computer, there is a taskbar icon that says Windows update is disabled. I click on that icon and turn automatic updates on. I restart my computer and the icon shows up again that Updates are disabled. Can anyone help me? I cannot even update my computer when I go to the Windows Update site.
