Thanks guys. This message forum saved my butt.
I got all kinds of crap all at once on my Dell desktop yesterday that caused all kinds of havoc, blocking PC-cillin virus program, shutting down Windows update, allocating the computer resources so nothing would run, it even blocked this web address.
After doing some research and a lot of reading here I downloaded Malwarebytes, ATF, and SAS and followed previously listed instructions and cleaned it up and now it's working better then new. I can't believe all the crap those three little programs found.
One thing I did find was the infection turned off the Windows update and even when the computer was clean it still was off. I found that the infection wasn't blocking update it turned it off. I went to Microsoft website and followed their instruction to turn it back on. I don't want to post how it was done( Maybe they already have) to respect the moderators but maybe one of them can give the instructions on how this is done to better help those that think its still being block when it's just simply turned off.
Thanks again guys. I know I will be checking back again just to stay up on things.
