Hi,

I just got this computer last week with Windows 7 already installed on it. I am finding that the choice I make for how to receive automatic updates will get changed to Never Update. I am new to Windows 7 as my old computer had XP, so this Action Center is new to me, and it is getting annoying having to constantly change the settings for my windows updates. Can someone please help me with this?

Thanks,

Karen

Run this M/soft Fix It program to turn on Automatic updates. Just follow any given directions -

Or you can visit Windows Vista and Windows 7 Let me fix it myself -
Scroll down to Vista and Windows 7 directions -

Hi -
Please read the second link I posted as you may need to "Do it yourself" if the Fix it option will not work -

Thank You -
