You should adhere to the advisory as posted in #5, nobody will examine your
HJT log in this newsgroup.

> am not the best at computers.


You don't have to, just follow the suggestions and read carefully.

Re: My windows xp autoupdate is not working
Hi phoman1126,

Hmm that link is working.

Any way

Because you had one piece of malware, the chances are also high that you had
others. It would be a good idea to scan. I recommend downloading and
installing MalwareBytes' Antimalware (MBAM) and SUPERAntiSpywaяe (SAS).

Do a full scan with MalwaяeBytes and SUPERAntiSpywaяe.


<http://www.superantispyware.com/>

-=-

<http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php>

-=-

The programs are free. (There is a paid version but you don't need to buy it
to remove malware.)
-=-

Good luck
