    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.

    Try this click Start>>Run type cmd click Ok.

    In the Command Prompt type chkdsk /r click Enter

    You will be asked if you want a check disk to run on next startup click Y and then press Enter

    Restart your PC
