  • Assuming that you mean that OneCare is reporting that Automatic Updates are off and you click the action item to turn AU on successfully when OneCare prompts you, I will move this thread to the Tune-up topic folder. That is the part of OneCare that monitors the state of Automatic Updates and also Windows Updates.
    The problem can be internal to OneCare or it may be due to malware. If it is infrequent, I would ignore it. if it happens regularly, that is at each reboot, you should contact support.
