unable to start automatic updates

I followed process recommended by Microsoft and after selcting Start button,
I received error 1058: Service cannot be started, either because is is
disabled or it has no enabled devices associated with it. ( Had enabled it
pror to depressing the start button.

So my question is where do I fine the enabling device associated with
automatic updates?

Any an all help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Al

RE: unable to start automatic updates

Considerations:-

System may be infected with malware "Vundo"
http://www.microsoft.com/security/po...=Win32%2fVundo

Service does not start and displays "Error 1058"
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/241584

You cannot manually start the Automatic Updates service and you receive an
"Error 1058"
error message on a computer that is running Windows XP or Windows XP Tablet
PC Edition 2005

"Could not start the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service. Error 1058" error
message when you manually start the Remote Procedure Call service

RE: unable to start automatic updates

I had a similar problem, a trojan virus was the cause. I installed spybot(
it was the only virus scan that worked for me) ran scan cleared all items.
Went to djlizard.net /software/dial-a-fix. Save the zip file to desk top,
extract it . Double click on the dial-a -fix .exe & click the tool button(
icon looks like a hammer)at the bottom right on the window. select reinstall
automatic update service. You my have to install OS cd I did not have to.
After that restart windows & try automatic update service. I got this
information from Microsoft support. e-mail v-30gome@mssupport.microsoft.com.
My system is 100% again.
