    "Security Center can't change your automatic updating settings"

    I keep getting this message everytime I try to update my computer...I'm
    running Vista 32bit. In addition to that whenever I log onto the internet
    and use either firefox or internet explorer I get this message: "microsoft
    windows explorer is restarting"
    can someone please help me?

    Given no other information...

    Unexplained computer behavior may be caused by deceptive software

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

    When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
    (http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe) is the preferred tool to use.
    It will help you to both identify and remove any hijackware/spyware with
    assistance from an expert. **Post your log to

    http://forums.spybot.info/forumdisplay.php?f=22,
    http://castlecops.com/forum67.html, or other appropriate forums for review
    by an expert in such matters, not here.**

    If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
    isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
    independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.
