    On Dec. 22nd, 2014, Microsoft Tech Escalations' final answer to determine why my Updates were being disabled at reboot was to create another user acct & delete my original acct.It didn't work. Afterwards, I removed Vosteran and Ask.com on my own from Chrome browser. I removed stuff like mysearchdial, brain something and another 'my'. Today, I ran that adware and removed util megabrowse. Still disabling at reboot.

    Every day I check.Every day i see that no updates were ever done and there are never any that are required (probably due to the new acct which has caused much mischief.). Every day, 2x a day, i run Updates, BitDefender and Malwarebytes.

    Oh, Escalations created a restore point on 12/22 and a couple of days ago Updates troubleshooter created another one berfore it determined there were no problems. Are the two created for the same purpose or for different ones ...

    Today, I went online for more info and found that a windows update released early 12/2014 was glitched and the new one just released last week could be manually uploaded. My updates say there are no new ones. http://pcsupport.about.com/od/system-security/fl/patch-tuesday.htm


    However, this article below says the problem is specific to Windows 7, particularly 64-bit. I followed its instructions and could not find Update KB3004394 in order to replace it with the new one.

    Could it be the bad patch or the fact that I have a new user account in a different directory/place?


    Suggestions?

    I do not have a direct solution to your problem of enabling Automatic Updates. But for me, I never use the auto update feature; MS releases patches on every 2nd Tuesday of the month. And I have it calendered on my cell phone to go do a manual update on that day.

    Yow! I don't have the sophistication of your system. When you get a chance, take a look at the last update KB3025390. This was a patch that was supposed to fix a patch that didn't fix an earlier patch.


    Also, Microsoft just announced that they will no longer give advance notice on updates.


    Take care and thanks for letting me know that other options exist. But, that is for a later day.

    I already have this patch. It's defective even tho' it's been updated to 5.1, according to MS.
