Error 1058 Windows Update Service Disabled

I have a laptop with XP Pro SP2 and the Windows Update service is disabled
and will not start. When I try to start it I receive error 1058. I have
already tried reinstalling Windows Update Client. I re-registered the WU
dll's. And I checked to make sure that the Profiel is enabled in the service
properties. Any other ideas???

Thanks.

The symptoms you describe indicate that a malware known as
Vundo\Virtumonde is resident. Using Internet Explorer, have the system
scanned here: http://onecare.live.com/site/en-au/center/howsafe.htm

Several posters in this newsgroup have reported that the malware was
successfully removed using the above scanner.
Others have used Superantispyware to remove the malware.
You can use google to find it if the OneCare scan doesn't remove it.

Re: Error 1058 Windows Update Service Disabled

I ran scans of both, one care live and also superantispyware for Error 1058.
Both were unsuccessful. However I also get Error number 0x80070 when I
attempt to "Review update history" through Dell Support. Microsoft support
pages will not open for me. "Automatic updates" simply will not enable
manually. What shall I next try?? Thank you anyone who can help. Jimbo

Re: Error 1058 Windows Update Service Disabled

Judging from similar posts here in the past month or so, the behavior may be
due to a Vundo-ZLOB-SDBot infection, all of which is protected by a rootkit.

Run a thorough check for hijackware, including posting your hijackthis log
to an appropriate forum.

If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this

independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.

Re: Error 1058 Windows Update Service Disabled

Problem Description: Windows Update service is disabled and will not start.

When I try to start it I receive error 1058, the service cannot be started,
either becaue it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated
with it.

I did have a malware known as Vundo\Virtumonde, but removed it using
XoftSpySE. I also now get the following error when I start my pc:
Error loading C:\windows\system32\qkbvvbcv.dll

I have the feeling this was associated to the malware

Can you help me get my pc working correctly?
Operating System: WindowsXP

This is an incomplete code. Hex codes should have 8 nibbles.
E.g. if it was a code to represent your 1058 it might be 0x80070422

In any case here's what those codes would mean

<cmd_output OS="XPsp2">
E:\>net helpmsg 1058

The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled
or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
</cmd_output>

Does Dell have their own service? Otherwise it looks as if
you need to find more details about *which* service "cannot be
started". ; }


> Microsoft support pages will not open for me.
> "Automatic updates" simply will not enable manually.



Need better symptom descriptions. Remember, your words
have to substitute for what our eyes might notice.

However, you're jumping into someone else's incident and without
specific confirmation about your details we really should not
assume anything about your other details, such as OS,
browser version, etc. Note that last month there was a jimbo
who was asking about Vista. If that was you and this latest
incident is on the same machine any suggestions you might
be given here could confuse readers who happened to have
the identical symptoms of the OP, including the same OS.


> What shall I next try?? Thank you anyone who can help.



Try starting your own thread with your own details.

And, if you don't mind please explain why you post
your empty messages. My guess yesterday was that
you did it while voting. To repeat: you can vote without
posting an empty post. ; )

Re: Error 1058 Windows Update Service Disabled

Follow PABear's advice, please. *If* the issue is not be caused by Vundo
or another malware, then see this:

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
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896224

"Could not start the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service. Error 1058"
error message when you manually start the Remote Procedure Call service
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/838428

The final step, if the AU service still can not be started, is to
reinstall it: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883614

See Method 2: One or both services do not appear in Services Control Manager

*If* the system still can not update, run the AU Reset Tool:

Yes, that file is malware-related. The message indicates that the system
is looking for it on boot but since it's been deleted, the error message
appears. Actually, that's a good thing and nothing to be concerned with
right now.
If the AU service is still disabled, using Internet Explorer, have the
system scanned here: http://onecare.live.com/site/en-au/center/howsafe.htm

Or, use google to locate a download link for Superantispyware. Some
posters in this newsgroup have had success removing Vund\Virtumonde with it.

If nothing you do resolves the issue, then post to a reputable
anti-malware forum for further assistance. Please read the guidelines of

Re: Error 1058 Windows Update Service Disabled

so sorry - I goofed with the empty message with "trial and error" pushing
buttons. No it was not me re:Vista. This is the first time I've tried using
this system attempting to fix my own computer, but obviously I should have
taken it to the experts....but have learned a lot trying!! Thank you for your
help, and I think my computer is now fixed, thanks in part to your valuable
advice.
