I tried to Windows Update my computer and it gives me a error. When i investigate it further, the automatic updates service is turned off. I try to turn it on and it says:
Could not start the Automatic Updates service on Local Computer.
Error 1083: The executable program that this service is configured to run in does not implement the service
Start button > select RUN> type in SERVICES.MSC click OK
The following services are needed by the processes at Windows Update. In
services management console ( services.msc) they must NOT be *Disabled* in
the Startup type.
They need to show a startup type of Manual or Automatic.
Here are the services & their Startup types:
Background Intelligent Transfer Service(BITS) Manual
Cryptographic Services Automatic
Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Automatic
System Restore Service Automatic
Now then, look at the entry for Automatic Updates. Does it shows Started in
the Status column? If not, click on "Start" the service link.
