    I've read in other threads that people are having the same problem as me and I tried to do what was recommended to my computer but it hasn't worked. I have Windows Vista and have seen my computer is running a little slower than usual and I think it's Malware but I was also trying to install Windows updates but it had been failing. I tried running these lines:

    regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wuweb.dll
    regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wups2.dll
    regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wups.dll
    regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wucltui.dll
    regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wuaueng1.dll
    regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wuaueng.dll
    regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wuapi.dll

    when I ran the first line I got a warning box starting out by saying: the module "regsvr32.exe c:\windows\system32\wuweb.dll" failed to load etc... It use to update perfectly fine but they have all failed recently. Please help thank you!
