    I have XP pro. When i go to my computer - properties - automatic updates i see all the tab greyed.

    But in the same computer with other user, I can see and use the automatic update option.

    Where can I turn on that service or change it in the registry ?

    thanks

    Start>Run>services.msc

    Set "Automatic Updates" to Automatic :D and then start the service.
