It has been getting regular Windows updates (Automatic), but that seems to be blocked. The window update page says:
The site cannot continue because one or more of these Windows services is not running:
- Automatic Updates (allows the site to find, download and install high-priority updates for your computer)
- Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) (helps updates download more quickly and without problems if the download process is interrupted)
- Event Log (keeps a record of updating activities to help with troubleshooting, if needed)
I changed the Startup Type to "Automatic" and clicked Apply and got an error message "Access denied"
I was using a User that is a Computer Administrator. I switched to another user that was also an administorator. Same error.
When I check other services, I can make changes, so it is only AUtomatic Update that is locked.
How do I unlock it and start getting updates again.
Thanks for any help you can give.
