The security center says my windows update is turned off--however, if i go into my control panel and click on the security settings, it says it is on. Furthermore, I've tried going into services.msc (through "run") and am able to "start" (none of htem are off) my event loggers and BITS, but my automatic updates is set to "disabled" (in the general tab--it's enabled in the log on tab). If i select "automatic" or "manual" the start button is able to be depressed. However, when I depress it, i get an error msg (saying essentially it can't start it because it's either disabled or other services need to be started as well). Any ideas on how to get it working again? I'm afraid to access the internet and type anything because the virii it keeps finding are all ones that can record keystrokes (and i've run the virus scan and ad aware multiple times, but it usually picks up somehting new each time). I've tried housecall and panda online, which it will run, but usually has some type of error before hte scan/clean finishes.
Any help is greatly appreciated as this is my work laptop and i do not have time to put it aside for now!
