The security center could not change your automatic updates settings

by getdeclue on March 20, 2012

After fixing a Windows XP computer with a virus security center was showing that windows update was disabled. Reviewing system properties showed that automatic updates were enabled. To fix this problem I opened a command prompt window and I re-registered the following DLL’s and windows started updating again and the security center message went away.

regsvr32 wuapi.dll
regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
regsvr32 atl.dll
regsvr32 wucltui.dll
regsvr32 wups.dll
