    Here's a head scratcher:
    I had a non-destructive system restore about 2 weeks ago, I now found out that Windows Automatic Update no longer works. It says "The Windows Update Service Is Unavailable". I have to now go to the Windows Update Homepage to check for updates, is there a way to turn this back on? I know what to look for & how, but it says it's not there.

    check the services in administrative tools via control panel, see it WU is disabled from there.

    Thanks, that was it. I didn't even look in there. It was Disabled, after changing it to Automatic, it still didn't change, then I click on Restart Service, that worked.
    Thanks again,
