both of those "services" have to be enabled in order for windows automatic updates to work, and for being able to use the "microsoft update" website to install windows updates.. now that i see that you are installing "win xpsp3" on the computer, i assume that you will have to install a lot of additional windows updates, after that.. I now have SP3 but it still won't scan for updates on Windows Update site. How do I enable the background intelligent transfer service?
