  • Automatic Updates broken, XP Pro SP2

    I have recently had to reimage one of our company's machines, and after the installation finished we noticed that Automatic Updates is broken. The icon in Control Panel has no caption and double clicking does not open it. As a result, the computer has not registered itself with WSUS and is not being updated.

    Can anybody suggest a way to rectify this other than reinstalling again?

      Manually accessing Microsoft Update checks that the required libraries are properly registered, and fixes this issue if necessary. Problem now resolved.
