Possible malware may be prohibiting me from updating virus scanners?

A couple of days ago, my computer was fixed up and restored. A few days after that, it was hit with a nasty Trojan dropper that gave me false notifications saying that my computer (and its numerous programs) were infected. Using Malwarebytes, I scanned and got rid of these viruses.
However, for the past couple of days, I found that I was unable to update my Malwarebytes (receiving error code 732) OR my SUPERAntiSpyware. I changed my LAN settings and my Firefox browser network options, as some people recommended, but they still can't update. I also tried uninstalling and re-installing Malwarebytes, but to no cigar.

Additionally, my Firefox browser crashes at least 5 times every time I use the computer for no apparent reason. This never happened to me before.

I'm wondering whether this is because I have a couple remnants of the Trojan from before. Is there anything I can do?
