    The icon in my systems tray tells me that Automatic Updates is turned off,
    but the settings at my Control Panel indicate it's on.

    Then, when I attempt to download updates manually from the Windows Update
    page, an error message appears which reads:

    [Error number: 0x80070424]
    Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot display the requested
    page. You may find the following resources helpful in resolving the problem:
    For self-help options:

    Windows Update Response Center

    Windows Update Troubleshooter

    Windows Update Newsgroups
    For assisted support options:

    Microsoft Online Assisted Support (no-cost for Windows Update issues)

    What should I do? How do I correct this problem?

    part of the windows update site. Anyone?

    I am having the same problem. Did you download XP SP2? If you did, I think
    that is where the problem started. I hope someone can help us.

    Your computer may be infected with Trojan.Win32.Boxed. The variant that
    infected my computer was Trojan.Win32.Boxed.27718.B. The site
    http://www.globalhauri.com/ has details about how to fix it. If you want to
    make a quick check of whether or not your computer is infected, click Start,
    Run, and type in the following: "services.msc" (don't type the quote marks).
    Then scroll down to see if there is a Network Client service listed. If so,
    your computer has been infected with the trojan, as Network Client is not a
    valid service. Go to the site I mentioned above, and follow their
    instructions for repairing your computer.

    Thank you, Dennis!!!

    I'd called everyone to help me, but to no avail. I couldn't wait any
    longer, so I wound up simply doing a "system restore" which removed the
    problem.

    Should it happen again, I'll find this post again! Thanks so much!
