Im pretty sure my pc was infected by some kind of malware....please help..!! Part of the issue was that I found out that I had a virus so I was able to run full scan and got rid of the virus atleast I hope I then tried your magical solution and now Windows update is automatic and, so far, none of the other problems have returned. That should do the trick.

I used Dial-a-Fix and it worked as well.
It is common for computers at a business or school to have an administrator lock on Windows updates, as well as other settings. Windows XP users Open the Control Panel Open the System option. I've followed there directions and have gone to the "Control Panel" then to "Automatic Updates". My computer had slowed to a crawl.
