1. Disable your anti-virus application, any real-time protection provided by
an anti-spyware application (except for Windows Defender; includes Spybot
Tea Timer, SpySweeper Guards, AVG AS guard.exe, etc.), disable any
third-party firewall AND enable the Windows Firewall.
NB: You're "working without a net" now: Don't to ANYTHING else online (e.g.,

3. Re-do #1 above.
4. Go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
