Go to the Control Panel & double click Administrative Toos
Double click Services
Locate Automatic Updates
Double click it & a box shold open
Where it says Startup Type make sure it is set to Automatc
If the Start "button is showing so you can click it ,do so
Click Apply
Click OK

Go back to the Control Panel
Click on the System icon
When the box opens click on the Automatic updates tab

Make sire there is a dot in the circle by Automatic (Recommended)
Click Apply
Click OK
Close out back to the desktop.

If you receive a "Access denied" message while doing any of this your user account does not have administrative priviliges.

Bleeping Computer has a rule that no information can be provided to circumvent any security.
Because of that I don't think I can tell you how to work around not having Administrative priviliges.
