Windows 7: Checking for updates of my windows 7 system no longer responds

I do not understand why you are not willing to delete all of the threats found by reliable Malwarebytes.

What are these programs exactly? Are they warez, because we are not able to continue helping you if you are using warez.

1. Please run this tool and post the results.

2. Remove all anti virus, anti malware programs.
2. Install MSE and Malwarebytes Anti Malware, update them.
4. Remove all illegal software. Whether you need them, want them doesn't matter.
5. Update MSE and MAM and run complete scans and let them remove what they
find. If they find bad things let us know what they find.

Those are just normal programs, Please understand me, if these copies files were threats, I would delete them without any hesitate
But I don't believe that copies of program(NOT installation) are threats.
If I delete them, will my problem with updates of windows and the others solve?
I don't think because there isn't any relation between the copies of programs and my problems, unless these copies become installed.

If you're worried that your computer is infected then run the scans and clean up what they report.

You are being unnecessarily stubborn and irritating those trying to help you.

Let us know when you clean up the infections which Malwarebytes and Windows Defender offline report.

Thank you Gregrocker,
I don't want to irritate you, but I want to know what I want to do and what I remove to benefit from this problem in the future.

I said fairly (30%) sure that my computer is infected because the updates of windows, system restore and Backup and restore icons don't respond when I click on them. So, I was expecting that I would find threats which are installed in my computer. In other words, infected programs are installed on my computer. So when I delete those program, my problem will solve. However, when I found out that all those threats are detected inside copies program (Not installed). How copies program will cause such problem at all?

On the other hand, I found out that 'Malwarebytes' found only 12 threads, however, 'Windows Defender offline' found much more threats than 'Malwarebytes'. All of them are copies (WINRAR FILES)

What would you like to explain this?

I think you have a lot of warez on your PC you are trying to protect by not cooperating with us from the start.

If not then you'll delete everything found by both scans and we will move on.

You may need a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 or Repair Install if removing the malware followed by SFC -SCANNOW Command don't set it right.

Thank you Greg, but how can I follow these steps either 'clean reinstall' or 'repair install' as long as I want to fix the problem on this compute of mine.

I have done 'SFC -SCANNOW Command' before and it found some problem in the first time and notified me that it repaired them. But when I run it again and again didn't found anything. But I didn't found any logs of repaired files by sfc scan.
I wan to proceed to 'repair' or 'clean reinstall'. Do you think this ' Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 or Repair Install' is better than restore from the backup which is in the recovery of factory?

Repair Install reinstalls the OS while keeping all programs, files and settings in place. It can solve problems in about half the cases I've seen. If not then move on to Clean Reinstall.

Clean Reinstall is superior to factory recovery because it reinstalls only the OS without all of the factory bloatware and useless OEM utilities that have better versions built into Win7. If you follow the steps in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to install and maintain your OS then you'll have a perfect install which you can image so you never have to reinstall again.

Thank you Greg,
I am facing a problem because I have only one computer which needs being fixed. So, how can I remember a step in case I forget it while doing ' Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 or Repair Install?
