Uninstall ZoneAlarm, and use Windows Firewall.... type [/B]services.msc[/B] in the start search box, click on the icon, then scroll down to Windows Firewall. Set it to start automatically. Set all ZA/checkpoint to disabled.

You can use this tooll to totally uninstall ZA, McAfee, AVG and any other application that didn't work. Uninstall & Remove McAfee Norton & More Antivirus Applications — OPSWAT AppRemover

Once you've removed all remnents, restart your computer and see if MSE will update now.

OK, Jacee
This is making me look VERY stupid. Please tell me where you see that I have Zone installed?

Thanks! Yes, I found that after reading a tutorial. It was a Chrome extension. It doesn't show on the app removal tool. I tried deleting it, but MSE still won't update. I do find that now I can update it manually, which is good! Thank you for that!!

Now I'm in a different kind of trouble. My sound doesn't work. When I went to Device Manager, the snap-in window is empty!

Wow! Ryan's law: "Murphy was an optimist"

Did this computer come with Windows seven already on it? I'm beginning to think you need to do a repair install ... Repair Install

I just read this thread and have to say that I agree. Things have become way too messy to clean up by the looks.

You can definitely try a Repair install.
But I would back everything up first, as much as you can and prepare for full format and reload.
My advice is to cut your losses and save yourself the time and headache trying to fix issues from multiple A/V and Firewall installs that you will never be sure are completely fixed anyway.

Honestly, with all the things going on with that system, trying to repair it might work,
but you might also have other issues down the road.

Get rid of them all and start over, at least then you know that you are starting over
and any future issues should not be related to any previous issues.

Having numerous A/V's and Firewalls installed, and not being uninstalled properly, you will never be certain that any repairs attempted will have fixed any potential conflicts completely.
All future issues will be suspect of conflicts and possible OS corruption till you nuke and reload.

How many days have you been working on trying to repair this?
You could have fixed it by now by just backing up data and clean reinstalling the OS. Plus you would have a better peace of mind knowing that all existing issues would be gone, and any new ones are actual problems you can better deal with.

**That was not meant to come across harsh. Just trying to make a point.**

There is a time to try an work out issues and fix them, but there is also a time to give it up and start over.

Also, AVG is complete total Garbage. Stick with MSE.
And Windows does not need a 3rd Party Firewall.

A great post but......Your personal opinion may just be slightly wrong re AVG.

Quite a few people think otherwise...
