Windows updates service starts and then stops

    I have several workstations running XP SP2 that start the windows update
    service as expected but then it stops almost immediately with a message that
    says "The Automatic Updates service on Local Computer started and then
    stopped. Some services stop automatically if they have no work to do, for
    example, the Performance Logs and Alerts service."

    There is a corresponding event log entry (ID 7036).

    Any idea what causes this?

    will get you to the sites that contain the details:
