    Provides three management services: Catalogue Database Service, which confirms the signatures of Windows files; Protected Root Service, which adds and removes Trusted Root Certification Authority certificates from this computer; and Key Service, which helps enrol this computer for certificates. If this service is stopped, these management services will not function properly. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.
    *Windows Updates service set to Manual or Automatic will require this service. Windows Media Player requires this service for some of its features to function.

    In short...turn it on to get that download. including microsoft updates.
