  1. I was getting annoyed at the little window that always pops up saying 'automatic updates has encountered a problem and needs to close. we are sorry for the inconvenience.' so i went to add/remove programs and removed it.. hehe... oops... now the little window pops up ALL THE TIME. How to i get my automatic updates again?? when i go look in the program files, or use the search it doesnt work. Its not in the control panel at all... i mean... it is GONE. I know.. Im an *****, you dont have to tell me. :giddy:
