Hi BleepingComputer Family !
I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop, 32 bits, with Windows XP on it.
There is a Windows Security Alert, in the bottom right cornner of the caomputer. It just says, when I open it, that my Automatic Updates are turned off. I go into the control panel, open up Automatic Updates and it is already set to " Automatic". It's already on.
The red shield in the bottom right, doesn't act like a virus. It just sits there and nothing happens.
Any ideas on how to make the Security Alert go away ?
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated !

Hi -
I am not exactly sure of what you mean by The red shield in the bottom right. This can be an infection or updates are not turned on.
This usually means that Updates are turned off. Change your settings to Download updates and let me choose when to install them.
If this will not change anything then follow the Malware directions below. There may be something blocking them.
Then try going to the Update site and Saving the update and installing them later.
Also update and scan with your A/Virus and Firewall, or turn them off while you update, as this can block updates.

Last resort is below -

Thank You -
Please repost in this area Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs

Thank You -
