Re: Virus blocking windows update??
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
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!
OSX86 V free baby!
