I'll see what I can figure out.
Ok thank you, I'll wait. I don't even know why I have 2 names. one as user and one as administrator.

That looks better
Open an Elevated Command Prompt again, and run the following commands...
Code:
 
REG QUERY HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate  /S >> "%userprofile%\desktop\WUSETTINGS.TXT" 
REG QUERY HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer  /S >> "%userprofile%\desktop\WUSETTINGS.TXT" 
REG QUERY "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Internet Communication Management\Internet Communication" /S >> "%userprofile%\desktop\WUSETTINGS.TXT" 
REG QUERY HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate  /S >> "%userprofile%\desktop\WUSETTINGS.TXT" 
REG QUERY HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU  /S >> "%userprofile%\desktop\WUSETTINGS.TXT" 

.
post the results and we'll see where we are.

That's exactly the same?
Didn't you delete the entry for Explorer while you were in Regedit?
If you did, then there's obviously something reinserting it every time.


Please download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) from http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/ - UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM Premium' at the end of the installation - and update it, then run a full scan in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.

Delete everything it finds

The data is still there - let's check something else, in case it's been buried in the HKLM Key...

Open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following command.

REG QUERY HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
