Question for my geeky friends

My computer keeps telling me, every day now, that automatic updates are turned off and warns me to turn them on. But everytime I check where it tells me to turn them on, they're already on. The thing is either lying or mistaken. Since computers can't lie... how do I let it know that it is mistaken?

This is just a test.

where are you checking?

And there are a lot of things that have "automatic updates". It could be Windows, could be your firewall, could be your AV, could be other things.

Windows Security Alert is telling me it's been turned off. So does the security center. But I went into the control panel under Automatic Updates and it says it's on and scheduled to check every day at 3 AM. Going to it through control panel and system shows the same thing.

Try the teamviewer thing again (try to chat me first so you know I'm around)

I figured out what I was doing wrong before so I can make it work now. And that'll let me check your system with you watching.

I dunno, but I wanted to tell you that hottopic.com is offering 10 dollars off of orders of $10.01 or more! Just enter the code GHTBD91W at online checkout. They have a lot of really cute kneesocks, which I thought you might like! I got two pairs (rainbow skulls and hot pink hearts!) :)
