solve pc issues 1 important message Change windows update settings

I've been having this same issue for over a year now and I can NOT find a solution. I registered today because I don't know what else to do.
I keep getting this notification "solve pc issues 1 important message Change windows update settings" almost daily. The message says it's a security thing and even though I check the box everytime, I still get that message.

For that message to go away you must have Windows Update set to automatically download and install updates.
What WU setting do you have?

If one wants to keep whatever settings without getting some "important message", that's possible in action center (see attachment). Not a recommendation, only information.

If you change Windows update to 'Automatic' and it does not stick, there's something wrong that needs to be investigated.

Could the security program be the cause of this problem.

...I never noticed that - thanks, Bear! I agree that it's VERY possibly the source of the problems, and would recommend uninstall with prejudice.

Thank you so much for your replies. Each time that notification comes up, I click on Install updates automatically (recommended). But it doesn't stick as I'll get another same notification a day or 2 later. I turned off messages about Windows Updates and is currently not being monitored. I don't think it's recommended but it seems to work for now.
Is there anything else I should be checking? Please advise!

You can try to change the setting directly in Control Panel - Windows Update - Change settings. Set it to recommended and see if it sticks that way.

I have that flag every day also because I haven't set Windows Update to automatic. I'm fine what that.

Thanks for replying! Yes, I've changed the settings through the control panel and changed the settings each time the flag came up. Doesn't stick.
ALSO, I'm now noticing things like "not connected to internet" even when I'm online. Also, my personalization page (where you choose themes and screensavers) never reflects my choices. It shows 'none'.

Have I been hijacked or something?

Did you listen to the advice from Layback Bear & NoelDP? I can't see you've commented on that. They highly question your antivirus product, which might be the reason to your problems.

I disabled ASC and am a little leery about uninstalling it completely. Not getting any notifications from windows update so far, so I'll close this for now.

Thank you Layback Bear, NOELDP and Tookeri.
