    Resolved [RESOLVED] Can't Turn On Automatic Updates

    For some reason I can't turn on Windows Automatic Updates. The Automatic Updates window is greyed out so that I can't make any changes. I checked in Services under Adminstrative Tools in the Control Panel and Automatic Updates is set to Started and Automatic. This a Windows XP Home machine. Any ideas?

    Success! I went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU I then deleted NoAutoUpdate in the right pane of the window. Now I am able to enable Automatic Updates once again. Nice Find Supersparks!!
