i went online this afternoon to find a game called angry birds. the first 2 sites i clicked on didn't do anything, they also didnt have the game i wanted. the last site i clicked was a .HTML which must have been programmed to automically to start popups and download of xp security. anyways i used the guide on here and got rid of it but something happened to turn off automatic updates and wont let me turn them back on. how do i fix this?
my OS is windows Xp of course.

its odd how visiting the some same sites on my laptop doesn't seem to affect it, but i also have spyware blaster and trend micro web protection add-on, so i don't have any problems with spyware along with the fact that i also use fire fox. so why does IE have all this crap that happens and hardly anything happens with fire fox? but this is off topic and doesn't have to be answered. just something i noticed since i use fire fox and am on my laptop a lot.

Start>Run(Start>Search for Windows 7) and in the information box type or copy and paste the following:

%SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\REGSVR32.EXE %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\WUAUENG.DLL

Then click OK.
