Hi,

Start/run msconfig, go to the services tab and enable the line for Automatic
Updates, click apply/ok and reboot.

Hi

Try this:

Start>Run - then type in "services.msc" - without the quotes. Make sure that the 'Automatic Updates' Service has been started. If not right click on it and select 'Start'. Have a look in the 'Startup Type' column - it should be set to 'Automatic'. If this isn't the case, right click on that Service, select Properties and then in the 'Startup Type:' drop down menu, select Automatic. You will have to reboot for the change to take effect.

Are you sure about Windows Update being bombarded? MSBlaster attempts
a DOS attack on an incorrect URL that originally caused a redirect to
the correct URL. Microsoft shut down the redirect before the DOS
started, effectively ending the threat of their Update site from being
bombarded.

Of course, many people may be hitting the correct address manually to
download the patch they should have installed weeks ago - that may
create the problem the OP is having - but it's not the worm's fault!
