Trying to install Win updates, manually or auto, neither works. l get error msg WUAUCLT.EXE. If I navigate to update site manually and choose updates to install, I get an
IE error message then IE apologizes and shuts itself down.

Have run multiple times: Panda Active Scan Pro, Norton, SpywareDoctor, SpySweeper in both regular and safe modes and with the restore thing unchecked but they don't detect whatever malware has got me in this fix.

Periodically I get another error message, 'Windows Virtual Memory Minimum Too Low -- your system is low on virtual memory. Windows is increasing the size of your virtual memory paging file."

Since I use this reconditioned IBM Stinkpad for nothing except email the virtual memory should be more than adequate and I see this as more evidence that I've been attacked.

So, what's got me? Help. Please.
