Hi There

I was on a website yesterday and it wanted to install an Active X control and I stupidly allowed it. I turned off Windows Automatic Updates and I started getting popups. It wont allow me to turn this back on. I have run Ad-Aware and Spybot but it still isn't allowing me to get anywhere.

Any Suggestions? Thanks

I ran the two mentioned programs after posting here but problems still occuring. Spybot says with one of them that I should restart the computer and disconnect from the internet and allow it to run again.

It is also, most of the time, not allowing Google to do searches if that helps to answer the query.

Hi There

I have solved this issue. I had Antivirus 2009 popups happening, I used Malwarebyte's Anti Malware and it worked great. Has allowed Automatic Updates to be tunred on again also.
