Less than two months ago did a clean re-install of Windows 8 Pro 64 bit, updated to 8.1, and installed all the following updates. At first everything was fine, but for the past couple of weeks or so I keep getting a message in action center that I should turn automatic updates on, even if I turn it on, next reboot it's back to being off again. I decided to run 'sfc /scannow' and it found errors that it could not repair. I then ran 'dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth' and while that fixed the errors that sfc could not, my problem persists. I'm not sure what to do next. If any PC specs are needed to help diagnose my issue, I have updated my profile so it reflects my current PC configuration.

What is your installed security program and have you run any other scans?

Should have mentioned that was the first thing I tried. I use Bitdefender Total Security 2015. It's scan and also those from Malwarebytes and MBAR found nothing.

W8 isn't my strong suit so I'm going to bow out before I make a suggestion that might make things worse

Sorry

I went though the steps in that link and while I haven't completely narrowed it down, I'm well on the way now. In a clean boot, Windows Updates work fine including automatic updates staying enabled. I can even re-enable all services and some of the 'startup' items (I currently have Bitdefender, Nvidia, and Razer (mouse) startup items enabled) and everything else turned off and have not gotten any warnings about windows update being turned off. Guess I'm going to need to go through the rest of them and figure what the culprit is.

Although it requires a bit of work on your part, I am glad to have found a link that can help you. :)

Well, I didn't mess with my startup apps at all since my last post, but I just now launched the Blizzard Battle.net launcher to play a game, and immediately the action center message about windows updates appeared. I find it really strange that this would be causing my issue, but I suppose I'll try doing a clean re-install of the launcher and see if that helps.

If you can recreate then you know for sure that is the issue....
