Ah - My crystal ball was right.
You seem to be running the current version of Avast and there are topics on the Internet about Avast messing with Windows Update settings and turning Windows Update off:
Of course Avast denies it but those people complaining about that "feature" of Avast didn't make that stuff up (hopefully).
In a previous reply I suggested to turn Windows Update OFF (Never check for updates) so you can be in charge of what gets installed on your system instead of Microsoft:
That strategy will also prevent Windows Update from sending you their snooping/spyware updates (where none of your personal information is ever collected and sent back to Microsoft) and hardware driver updates which can result in a nonboot scenario and then you will have a new topic called "Windows Update broke my computer".
If Windows Update is turned off - either because you did it on purpose or Avast did it for you the Windows Action Center will generate that other message about Windows Update being turned off and and suggest you "fix" the problem by turning Windows Update on again.
But I don't want Windows Update turned on again.
Since I like to have my Windows Update set to Never check for updates I also don't want the Windows Action Center to remind me about it so you can turn off that feature so you won't see the reminder message about Windows Update.
Go to Control Panel and make this adjustment to Windows Action Center and click OK to save the changes:
I know lots of people love Avast but after having to fix some BSODs and other things involving Avast I would recommend you uninstall and replace it with something that is less troublesome and has a much smaller footprint like Microsoft Security Essentials which you can get for the low, low price of free:
Microsoft Security Essentials
If the problem is Avast like some folks think maybe they will fix it someday.
Note: I like to recreate problems to avoid suggestions that begin wit the word "try" but I am so leery of Avast I will not be installing it (or Norton, McAfee, etc.) to see how they work.
