View Thread: Automatic Updates Service not working... I am out of ideas

    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 to work.
