    I`m guessing you`ve already tried fiddling with the update options such as `Automatic`, `Download but don`t install`, `Notify but don`t download` and of course, switching it off, rebooting and then switching it on again. Also make sure it`s set to Automatic in Services as well and not Disabled.

    If the computer`s been repaired at some point using the XP CD, the MS updates are turned off and you`ll have to manually go to the MS update site, download at least one update and then it`ll switch itself back on again. (See link below)

    I don't mean to be rude or anything... but you cant expect much help, if you don't explain anything about your problem...
    What have you tried?
