I have an old gateway computer I am trying to bring back to life so that I can use it for school. The first thing I did after I got it running was tried to install the windows updates. So far nothing Ive done has got it to work. The express option kept giving me the windows validation tool update that would download but failed to install. I then went online and validated it manually. After that the Express option gave me the Windows XP Service Pack 3 update which would also download but failed to install. I then had to manually download and install this update as well. I thought that would help but any and all updates attempted by Windows Update are still failing to install. When I go to the troubleshoot link it tells me to click "Review Your Update History" to find out how to solve the problem. When I go there the updates all say they were installed with a green check mark. Im not sure how to fix this or whats wrong I thought at first it could be some kind of virus, spyware, or malware so Ive ran ESET NOD32 Antivirus, SUPERAntiSpyware, and Malwarebytes' scans and found a lot of infections that were successfully cleaned by all 3 programs. The only thing that seemed might have been connected to this problem was a few particular infections I noticed in the MBAM log. Im not sure if this could be part of the problem but I copied that part from the results...
Registry Values Infected:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\microsoft update machine (Trojan.Backdoor) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
Registry Data Items Infected:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\AntiVirusDisableNotify (Disabled.SecurityCenter) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\FirewallDisableNotify (Disabled.SecurityCenter) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
I also have found for some reason when I turn on my MBAM protection a message opens saying MBAMservice terminated unexpectedly: see Event Log for details. Im not sure if the updates failing and MBAM not working are connected or not but im posting a copy of that log as well just in case...
