    Good day and thank you for reviewing this post.
    I have been dealing with a computer that had multiple viruses ..... including the TDSS. I have successfully removed TDSS and others from machines using a cocktail of Vipre, MWB, Avast boot scan, and Combofix. I have probably done 10 of these in the past 2 months with no side effects.
    Recently I have experiences 2 machines that refuse to access MS update site after full removal. I have "verified" my complete removal by running MWB and Vipre in safe mode and getting no hits.
    I have tried Dial-a-fix, and I have followed the instuctions as MS for this 403 Forbidden error to no avail.
    All else seems to work well ... web sites, email, programs, etc. The only thing I cannot seem to do is MS updates ... I can even update MWB and Avast ... but not MS updates.
    Does anyone out there have any experience with this or suggestions as to what I should do to regain my ability to do updates?
    Thank you very much for your time and advice.
