Windows Security Center says that Automatic Updates is turned off. When I click on the button to "Turn on Automatic Updates", a dialog box pops up that says it can't ("We're sorry. The Security Center could not change your Automatic Update settings..." It then instructs me to go to the control panel, System tab, and to turn them on myself. When I do that, that window says that Automatic Update ARE turned on (the Automatic (Recommended) radio button is selected).
I would assume that this is all happening as an after effect of having just been hit with the XP Total Security 2011 trojan. As far as I can tell, I have successfully gotten rid of that trojan, thanks to the fine help and instructions I found here at BP.
But whatever the cause, I now have this problem.
OS: Windows XP Pro, SP3
