Yes that's what I meant. You'll get used to remembering that it's the second Tuesday of every month.

Here's how I have WU set up, this way it will download what I want, when I want. If I wait too long though, I'll get the Shut Down to Install Updates note on the start button.

Mine's almost the same, but I have it set to install the updates automatically. Does that setting tell you when updates are available, or do you need to open WU to check?

Yes the notification is there when updates are ready. I then look through them and pick the ones I want, Important, Recommended, and hide the rest which are usually Silverlight or Bing crap.

Still on the fact that you're getting re-directed .....


Disable the proxy settings in Internet Explorer:
1) Under “Tools” in the browser tool bar select “Internet Options”.
2) In the “Internet Options” window that pops up, click the “Connections” tab at the top.
3) Click “LAN Settings” near the bottom of the “Connections” section.
4) If the “Proxy server” checkbox is marked with a check, click it to deselect/uncheck it.
5) Click “Ok” to close the “Local Area Network (LAN) Settings” window.
6) Click “Ok” to close the “Internet Options” window.
Reboot
Make sure "Proxy server" is still disabled under your LAN Settings.

I just had a look and "proxy server" is already unchecked. Also, I don't know if it makes a difference, but I use Firefox as my main browser rather than Internet Explorer.

Let's see what DDS can uncover for us.


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.

Should I attach the files (and zip attach.txt like the program said) or copy and paste the contents?

Attach both DDS.txt and Attach.txt as an attachment, not a .zip file.

Here you go. Is it okay to delete DDS now?
