Windows tells me to change my update settings to what they already are

At least once a day I get a notification popup that tells me to "Change your Windows Update Settings" to automatically install updates, but they already are set to this option. What is happening and how do I stop this? It has the impeccable skill to randomly appear when I'm in a fullscreen application.
