    Just recently had the pleasure of removing a malware infestation, (Could'nt have done it with your help) Thanks again dvk01!
    Anyways, seems I'm unable to update with any of the recently published security updates. They show downloading but are unable to install. Is there a chance something was removed that aids installation?

    I don't think it's anything to do with the malware removal as I had problems with yesterdays updates aswell

    they downloaded but wouldn't install the first time

    I had to reboot & then go back to windows update and it then installed

    try that and if it doesn't work come back

    Think it may be a bug on their behalf.
    Clicked on View installation history page and it shows a couple going in.
    Also, I was thinking, might that beta spyware tool grab some of these updates behind the scenes just not report it in the update page?
    Here I am thinking at 6 am .......

    Tried rebooting, nothing. I was a bit off.
    It only shows two updates installing from mid March, realized we're in April now. Like I say, it's early.

    there are 6 or so updates from yesterday

    if it isn't finding those then yes there could be something still wrong with the computer

    download this fix for another pest that does block updates amongst other things, save it to desktop & double click it and say yes to the prompts to merge with registry

    if anything is wrong it wil correct it

    After I choose the updates it looks like they download then I choose install.
    I then get a window that says "Updates were unable to be succesfully installed" and a window within that shows the list of updates. I close the box with the close button.
    Then it goes to an "Installation Summary" screen that basically says the same thing

    One thing that is happening, is a lot of programs are missing from start up after I ran that script. Norton, netropa, Direct cd, nVidia drivers, Ms' Antispyware, and a few others.
    Had to roll back a few days to a previous restore point to get them back.

    I can't see how that registry script has removed any of the programs or short cuts you mentioned so it looks like something major wrong

    post a hijackthis log please

    nothing showing but if you have rolled back a couple of days it probably wouldn't

    it should have removed the updates as well so try windows update now

    First dialouge box
    The second box

    I wasn't suggesting that the script removed those start ups, it was just an event coincedence. I tried rolling back further yesterday and still couldn't aquire any updates.
