Just wondering if anyone else has tried to use the Windows Update today.
I go there using the Tool, in IE8 then "Windows Update." It has always taken me there.
But all day today, I have been blocked by "Panda Cloud Antivirus," stating that it has blocked me because the site is malicious etc.. And it wants me to download the Panda Cloud Antivirus.
I have tried everything for several hours to get through to the Windows Update site and can not.
I was off the computer for more than a week and knew that I had to do my updating right away. Updated my Microsoft Essentials then tried the Windows Update to no avail.
Used: MS Fix It Center. . . Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. . . Microsoft Safety Scanner. . . Disk Clean Up and Defrag and downloaded and used malwarebytes.org.
I even deleted IE 8 and downloaded/installed it again.
I have: Windows XP Hm ED 32 bit sp3 Pentium 4 CPU 2.40GHz 1.46 GB RAM
Never do games. All I have been doing is data entry for FamilySearch. Reserching surnames.
Now, I'm a great grandma and don't know a whole lot about all this.
Was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem.
Can you try using your IE, Tools, Windows Update. . . and see if it happens to you?
Thank you so much,
