My computer's Automatic Updates Service is not starting with windows and upon trying to manually start it I get the following error message:
"Could not start the Automatic Updates service on Local Computer.
Error 0x8024d007: 0x8024d007"
I have tried registering dlls, reinstalling COM+, replacing HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Svchost with a key from a machine where Automatic Updates are working, etcetera. Nothing I have done so far has worked. Any ideas?
By the way, I have no clue how this started because I normally leave updating to Automatic Updates but then yesterday when I went to manually run Windows Update, it did not work. Apparently, you need the Automatic Updates service running for Windows Update
