Carolyn, I somehow missed your FixWU ... well to tell you the truth, I get frustrated easily with this computer technical stuff so I probably haven't been reading everything fully. I'll finish work, read about the FixWu and research those 2 programs that Greg spoke about.

I can't do this thing. It doesn't scan online. I had to put my name and email in. It then sent me a trial name and password with a link to download the trial. When I went to download it Windows security came up with fields to put my name and password in but told me that the company wants my name and password and it'll be sent over an "unsecure manner". Is there any other way?

I figured that you were referring to ESET. FixWU is not an online scan, it is a small zip file download.

I thought they were one in the same .. that doesn't surprise me.

Ok so MSE is scanning. What's my next move? I'm about ready to wipe this drive and start over

Patience isn't one of my strong points lol

Post the MSE scan results.

Don't do anything else until you run Fix WU. Let's see if that resolves the Windows Update issue.

Ok but ... Was that normal? That a box comes up from Windows asking me to log on? BTW, I don't know my password or name, for that matter.

Uh ... I don't see a log or anything to view with the results from the scan. When this finished d/ling it ran a scan automatically. It only did a quick scan. Almost 8,000 things were scanned and no problems. Should I run a full scan?

I gave you the wrong link for the ESET Online Scan - sorry, my bad

ESET Online Scanner

I don't think you need to run the full MSE scan. If the quick scan had found something, then I would say yes.

I figured it out. I looked up Fix WU and got the link. I downloaded it. I used it. The next thing I know the installation installer icon is off my bar. I rebooted. It hasn't come back in the several minutes that I've been back online. It only took about 2 minutes to show up again. I think I'm in the clear

So question about MSE. It doesn't bog down your system? Just curious. I can't wait to see if there is a difference, other than my poor purse lol.

SON OF A ........IT JUST CAME BACK!! SAME UPDATE! ..........
