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
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

Re: Automatic Updates - Unable to activate - error 1058

I have the exact same problem described below. I have also tried going into
the registry. Their seem to be a folder or key missing in the
HKLocalMachine\SoftwarePolicies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdates\AU folder
called "NoAutoUpdate". The website I got this information from a wesite of
people that seemed to have this problem all at the same time. (Any Ideas why
this happened all of a sudden?) The website stated to set the value of this
folder to (0) but the folder itself didn't exist. I created it, but I saw no
change. I am scanning with windows live, but so far no trojan or virus has
been found called vulvo. My last scan was at 0115 on July 6

Re: Automatic Updates - Unable to activate - error 1058

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.

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://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30,
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.
