Problem with WindowsUpdate

i get the following error on windowsupdate.com

Windows Update cannot continue because a required service application is disabled. Windows Update requires the following services:
Automatic Updates enables detection, downloading, and installation of critical updates for your computer.
Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) enables faster, restartable downloading of updates.
Event Log logs Windows Update events for troubleshooting. To ensure that these services are enabled:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. Type services.msc and then click OK.
3. In the list of services, right-click the service name, and then click Properties.
4. In the Startup type list, select Automatic.
5. Verify that the service status is started.

If this does not resolve the problem you may request help from one of the following resources.


I checked and saw that the background intelligent transfer service was running and RPC was also running. I tried to stop the service and start it again, but it still didnt work. I am using a legit copy of Windows XP Professional - updated to SP2.
Please help me out, sorry, if this has been posted here before.

Yeah, I get this all the time, even after I check everything they say to check.
I can't seem to find the KB article on that specific code though.

I think it's caused by either the script blocker or firewall coz Windows Update works when I disable it.

it doesnt work even with my firewall off. Should I disable the Active content script blocker ? Shouldnt it put a message at the top of IE if that was a problem ?
