Where Is Windows Update In Xp

I REALLY appreciate your help. I tried going in under control panel and turn the updates on but it will not allow me to do so. Unless there's some other way through the maze that leads me to something else more helpful. The solution for me turned out to be rebooting into safe mode which then allowed me to rename the folder.

I've NEVER run into this problem before. I'll try to spend a bit of time on this site looking for problems I can help others with & not just come here when I need help myself.
