    When I click on Windows Update, a window briefly appears then disappears again. Same goes for System restore.

    The sidebar has disappeared too.

    Windows Defender isn't turned on and when I do so, and then try to update, I get error message 0x80040154, saying it can't check for definition updates. I've tried loading the manually, but no joy.

    I can't access anything via Start- Search - System or Control Panel - Admin Tools either.

    AVG has been reporting no threats at all.

    I've run Panda online scanner but nothing showed up, but I think I'm infected.

    I'm trying to run Windows Live™ OneCare™, but it "is currently experiencing technical difficulties".

    Any suggestions?

    Here is my HJT log. It wasn't happy running it at first, so I had to run it as Administrator.
