Was wondering if anyone has had issues with Automatic Updates turning itself off. My Auto Update turns itself off and the shield appears in my task bar. I click it and turn it back on, and it turns itself off in a few seconds. I go to Security Center and it tells me that Auto Update is turned on. ?????????? Not sure what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers: ~2isted~

try setting it to notify you there are updates but not to download or install the updates...
then when it does tell you there are updates...see if they will download and install..
this is how I set all the computers I work on..I even recommend they let the updates set for a few days so if the updates have been causing problems for other people...(those with it set to automatically update)...MS has time to figure out the issue and fix it...
