Automatic updates continues to turn itself off.
I have gone to the micrsoft website and did what it told me to do.
I get the error message that says "The site cannot continue because one or more of these Window services is not running"
I follow the instructions exactly and it does not work
I have done this 4 times
Every time I reboot automatic updates is off.
I cannot find a solution to this problem on microsoft. Maybe I am not looking in the right place.
Hope the wise minds of this forum can help me
thanks Kee
