Specs: Windows 7
My computer will not update the latest update from Windows or will it get the latest updates for my AntiVirus. From everything I have googled it looks like I have a virus. I would like some help trying to remove it, I have manually downloaded updated virus definitions but can't seem to get rid of the virus.

Please Help.

Yes. Everything has been running fine until about a month ago when it stopped updating. I did a complete format and reinstall of Windows 7 with a valid purchased copy.

As you are running genuine version of Windows 7, try downloading and running Microsoft security essentials. Its free for windows.

Lets if there is any help.

Thank you :)

Were Microsoft Essentials useful?

Please do the following:
1) Download this file:
2) Unzip it and run HijackThis.exe
3) Click on "Do a system scan and save a logfile" button
5) Paste log file that program generated to your next reply

I'll try to look for something wrong there...

I think I finally got it fixed. I was able to finally get a version of malwarebytes installed and run it and it detected a couple problems. I removed those problems and I'm able to update windows and connect to my antivirus update.
