Have you thought about backing up your data and doing a 'clean install'?

It could be related to all software/programs for itunes and syncing ... I'm at a loss, but I would try uninstalling all of that nonsense , cleaning all temp files, defragging, shut down, restart normally, and then try Windows updates again.
Totally frustrating to me!!

I Know how you feel... especially when my IE8 wouldn't allow access to this Forum but Firefox does (so now I use Firefox).

Update
Have since noticed Malwarebytes always finds a Registry error called Trojan: DNS Changer by 93.188.166.105 whenever the Internet is used. Months ago someone else had this trojan and also couldn't get Updates. Even though Malwarebytes cleans up my Registry it always reappears and just may be the culprit behind me never being able to update Windows.

Have a nice Easter!

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. Test whether internet connectivity is restored to IE.

No check in checkbox.

I know you saw this DNS before (pg 3) and id'd it as coming from Ukraine Promnet Ltd and
not a WA IP#, Jacee, is there a work-around?

Go into programs and features ... uninstall BitTorrent

Next, unhide hidden files and folders. Control panel > Folder Options > View tab. Tick to show hidden files and folds, uncheck hide extensions for known file types.

Now, go to C:\Program Files (x86)\BitTorrent <-- delete this folder
C:\Users\Ron\AppData\Roaming\BitTorrent <-- delete this folder

Reboot.

Download CKScanner by askey127 from HERE
Important - Save it to your desktop.
Doubleclick CKScanner.exe and click Search For Files.
After a very short time, when the cursor hourglass disappears, click Save List To File.
A message box will verify the file saved.
Double-click the CKFiles.txt icon on your desktop and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.

OK, but use it for P2P downloading of torrents so may have to reload the exe.

BTW for your info, that Urkraine company, Promnet Ltd, has the IP address which is 85.255.112.121.

Wet outside, huh!

Yes, I know that ... the IP is a known Domain Hijacker. They have control over your computer.

If you don't want to follow my instructions, then do a clean/custom install, or a repair install.
