Me too...all 3 are working fine now: IE, FF, and Chrome.

But Windows Update has 12 files to install and it won't install them. It's "help" routine says I should delete them and download again. But I can't find a way to delete them. Do you know that secret?
FOUND IT!

MS sure has an archaic way of doing things. I've deleted the non-installed files and Windows Update is now checking for new updates.

Dragging on...and on...and on...and on.

Yeah, I was out too. Bought a new microwave. Got it home. Plugged it in. SPARKS ALL OVER LIKE THE FOURTH OF JULY. Just as bad as WinUpdate.

Thanks again, Indiana.

The updates finally installed but the reboot is forever. Yikes...will it ever end?

@Echo off
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
cls
echo Script finished.
pause
del %0
This posted by Indiacarnie should have fixed the problem. I wonder why it didn't? Did you run the .bat file as administrator?

To be sure that I got it right, I copied it from that post and pasted it into Notepad, named it Reset.bat, copied it from my backup machine to the stricken pc, then ran it as admin (which I maybe didn't do right as I'm certainly not a pro). But I tried.

Hi Everyone

Regarding this issue(the title of the thread):

I have the SAME problem... and have found out EXACTLY what is causing it. As a computer repair expert, I am baffled as to SOLVE the problem, but with the help of everyone putting ideas based on what I found out, this MALWARE issue WILL BE SOLVED.

Here is what happened: This file was created and is the problem,"C:\windows\SysWOW64\AdpeakProxy.dll"
(GO ahead! Go into AVG virus vault and restore that file! Boom! It works! All the browsers work Again!)

It is a PROXY DLL that's a virus which is installed when Scorpion-ware was maliciously installed on the victims computer. AVG knows it's bad, but unfortunately doesn't realize that the OS has been messed with, IN WHICH
the OS is looking for AdpeakProxy.dll for the Proxy service! But it's gone! So how to fix it?

We need to find out WHERE is the Original Proxy DLL!? And also where in the registry (most likely) is the DLL referenced.
