I have Vista SP2 and maybe a month ago autoudates disappeared. It tells me it is not running and may I should reboot, but, give no error number. Also rebooting doesnot restart the service.  I ran a diag from Microsoft site and it tells me my computer doesn't support the software.

 

thank,

rcameron

Sorry for the late response as a faulty server connection in our ISP is confirmed during my last call and has been ongoing for the last couple of weeks so have to bear what is currently given... have you tried jumping to step 3 instead? Are you the only user of this computer?
