    Can anyone help? Firstly I was attacked by the Xp homes security 2012 trojan. I used another clean computer to download Spybot which dealt withe the registry change. Malabytes found the .exe file and dealt with that. I have sinced changed my anti virus to Panda, and run a scan. I am still concerned there mat be some residual problem. Two updates will not install, kb2626524 and kb2628259. I have followed all the instructions in your previous posts to try and correct any registry od download corruptions. Including running microsoft Fixit, which agrees there is a residual problem which it can't fix. I could not send the detail to microsoft either, this failed even after 4 or 5 attempts. kb 2646524 originally came up with Error Code: 0x80246002, but now just says cancelled in the update history. Same for kb2628259. Any help would be much appreciated.
    I am running Window XP service pack 3.

    This infection is often bundled with a Rootkit. Considering the continued problems you are having I would suggest you open a new thread in the Malware forum and get some help from a Malware Expert.
