    Hi All,

    I'm running Vista Ultimate 64bit, and It has suddenly stopped updating (Not on Automatic) and no longer responds to validation technique.

    The error Code 80070426 keeps appearing but not had much luck searching for an answer.

    I have recenty given it a 'spring clean' by removing several unused programmes. AVG professional is protecting as well as windows own firewall.

    Any suggestions would be warmly welcomed.

    Regards

    Boris

    I had the same problem for months and someone suggested typing the command ipconfig /flushdns. It worked instantly for me.

    If no luck with the advice from joeten and AshleeD,

    Please click here to download and install version 2.0.2 of the HijackThis Installer.

    Run it (as Administrator) and select Do a system scan and save a logfile.

    The log will be saved in Notepad. Copy and paste the log in your next post.

    Do not fix anything

    Hi Dear Phantom,

    Don't know if it's worth mentioning but, I used Chrome for a while before getting FireFox back, I then uninstalled Chrome.

    You do have traces of MyWebSearch, a common parasite, in your log. However, in my opinion, I don't think it's related to your problem.

    Read the suggestions HERE about Windows Updates.


    Other than that, I can't see anything relevant in your HJT log.

    Hi Phantom,

    I thank you for taking the time to have a look for me. It's just so frustrating that for three years nothing has changed and then suddenly-this.

    The 'GENUINE WINDOWS' logo has also disappeared which seems strange!

    Anyway, as I said, "Thank you". I will have a look on the link and see if anything transpires.

    Regards

    Boris
