Earlier today, I received an error message stating that the automatic updates on my computer had been turned off. Shortly thereafter, I received another message from AVG, telling me that my computer had become infected by a malware file called UXQ.exe. I immediately emptied my Temporary Internet Files, then started a scan with AVG (which turned up empty) before running a sweep with rKill, which produced no results. I was in the middle of a sweep with MalwareBytes when I received a blue screen and was forced to reboot my computer. Afterwards, my computer functioned as normal, but the automatic updates appear to still be off. What is wrong and what can I do to turn them back on?

Nevermind. Running Dial-A-Fix fixed the problem.
