Vista Automatic Updates


I have Vista Home Premium and Windows Live OneCare installed. Sometimes when I start my PC I get a red exclamation mark error message in the Notification Area and when I click on it, a window opens telling me that "Windows Automatic Updates is not set to download and install high-priority updates automatically". When I try to re-enable it, nothing happens.

Does anybody have any idea why this might be happening and how I might fix it?

Thanks in advance
