    I have Windows XP
    Home Edition
    Version 2002
    Service Pack 3

    When I boot up, I get an error message from Windows Update saying it's been
    disabled and I could get viruses..... I click on Windows Update in the
    tools section of Explorer and this error message displays. [Error number:
    0x8DDD0018]

    I have tried to do the "Run" services.msc and try to change the Automatic
    Update to Startup Type: Automatic. However, when I try to start it I continue
    to receive an error message that says:

    Could not start Automatic Updates Service on Local Computer.
    Error 1058: The service cannot be started, ether because it is disabled or
    because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

    Can anyone help??
    Thanks,
    Sandi
