Basically all the above solutions tell me to do what I have already done.  When I go to services.msc and I click on "automatic updates" and "enable" them and click "start" that is when I get the error.  Attached is my Hijack This log.

You have avg and surprise its not working you have tons of nasties on there mostly spyware.  I would suggest that you run a program called combofix first found here download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe  Then run a program called superantispyware found here http://www.superantispyware.com/download.html
and attach a new log when they have completed.

and actually my first post is a little different in that it is telling you to reneble it for a specific hardware profile instead of just enabling the service but it might be the virus's and spyware blocking it as they are real good for that.

well I just saw your running adaware and spybot also turn all that junk off when you run these 2 programs.

I had the same problem with my pc. superantipyware was able to detect and remove 3 spy ware progs. I just had to re enable automatic updates service. Thanks a lot
