- do you have the keep my computer up to date... check box checked? If not, check that.

- make sure you are logged in as admin to change settings.

- if all else fails, try going to C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\ and relocate the hosts file in that directory to your desktop TEMPORARILY. If that doesn't work, put the hosts file back in the etc folder.

- if all else fails even more, go to start, run, and type in: sfc /scannow

*then let it scan now.

- if all else really fails, contact microsoft support and complain.

- I don't think I helped at all.

automatic updates are usually available like a week or so after they are posted on the windows update site. It's not really useful anyway, unless you cant type windowsupdate.microsoft.com in your browser. I would just forget it.

Actually, have you tried checking the Services? It might be that the Automatic Updating Service is disabled. ;) If it is, enable it and it's fixed.
