Re: Virus blocking windows update??
Dear Dave,

It seems a virus is kicking my but. The only problem I can't fix w/o a
reinstall is that the page updatewindows.microsoft.com gives a diagnose
connection page.
My host file is blank, no virus currently running.
avg9 up to date, spybot search & destroy up to date. service pack 3 up to
date as of 5/27/210
peerguardian 2 up to date (on or off doesn't matter)
AVG firewall off or on doesn't matter.
Hijackthis logs are clean.
cwshredder found nothing.

I clean a lot of virus off windows, but this one!

Thank you,
OSX86 V free baby!

OSX86 ? Please explain which computer you're attempting to clean.

If it's Windows XP/Vista/Windows7, then *strongly suggest* you boot to
Safe Mode and run the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool as a first
step:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

IF it detects a Win32/Alureon variant and can not remove it, see:

How to remove malware belonging to the family Rootkit.Win32.TDSS
