windows update did not configure on restart?

Win 7 Pro 32-bit, VSS off (Puran Defrag...).

I temp disabled my AV until restart, and installed todays win update.
On 'Restart Now", win did not configure at all (normal restart)?

The bubble came up saying all updates installed correctly.
After another reboot I ran Check for Updates, and there were none (History was all successful).

After another reboot- I ran All my demand/on-demand AV/Rootkit scans, and they were negative.

Now IE11 is Very slow.

Any suggestions?

After following Jacee request please take note.
I have seen reports that some after market defrag tools will destroy the Windows 7 Update process.
I recommend the Windows 7 built in defrag tool. Of course this is after you have a clean system.

MBAM Rootkit beta found/removed 4 rootkits, only after I disabled my KIS2013 AV until Restart.

CCleaner removed the logs that show up in regular MBAM logs long ago (since disabled MBAM CC cleanup).

Download DDS from one of these links:
DDS.com
DDS.pif
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt <--- will be minimized in the task tray
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your next post.
The scan will instruct you to post Attach.txt as an attachment.

Thank you for the help!-

I have a Macrium Reflect full backup that I'll go back to.
Uninstall Puran/CCleaner..., defrag with Win defrag tool, and try Win Updt again?

At this time I recommend following Jacee's suggestions.
I will sit back and watch.
Rootkits are nasty little fellows.

I have Restored Win 7 (Macrium Reflect), to a recent Pre-Win Updt , uninstalled Puran, then Activated Win 7 Defrag (not run yet).

Here are the DDS files you asked for-
attach.txt

Notes.txt

Can you please attach the DDS.txt?
DDS is a program that will scan your computer and create logs that can be used to display various startup, configuration, and file information from your computer. This program is used in our security forum to provide a detailed overview of what programs are automatically starting when you start Windows. The program will also display information about the computer that will allow us to quickly ascertain whether or not malware may be running on your computer.
To use DDS, simply download the executable and save it to your desktop or other location on your computer. You should then double-click on the DDS.com icon to launch the program. DDS will then start to scan your computer and compile the information found into two log files. When DDS has finished it will launch the two Notepad windows that display the contents of these log files.


I don't know what the "Notes.txt" is all about......
