Cannot turn on Automatic update in Windows XP
  

Hi friends,

I am facing an issue with my Operating System. I always like to have my Automatic updates ON for my Windows XP SP2. Whenever i am trying to put a check on the update it is grayed out and when i try to do it manually still facing the same issue.

I don't want to format my PC because i know that when i install all the application it would get the same issue can anyone help me out with this issue.

Thanks in Advance.

Re: Cannot turn on Automatic update in Windows XP

I was also facing the same issue i tried to do the following steps, hope it will work for you.
  1. Click on Start - - > Run.
  2. Type regedit
  3. Find the key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\au

  4. In the right pane, look for a key called noautoupdate
  5. Change the value from 1 to 0.
  6. Save it and reboot your PC.
Now you would be able to check the Automatic updates on.

Re: Cannot turn on Automatic update in Windows XP

There is one more way of turning automatic updates ON by using Dial- a -fix software.

For downloading link here:-

I am sure it will solve your problem for sure without going to registry and taking a risk.
