I found several trojans with Avast and Malwarebytes but notice that I cannot access Malwarebytes website or update Spybot, Adaware or any other spyware program.

Avast seems to update OK and found one infected file.

I'm on my son's computer and when I try to update I get the message "error retrieving update info file".

When I try to access a site like Malwarebytes.org I get the message "Server Not Found". However I can go to other sites just fine.

To get Malwarebytes and spybot to run I had to download them to a flash card on another computer and then install them on this one but I cannot update them.

This is a Dell Inspiron 1150 running XP home with Service pack 3 and running Firefox browser.

My son thinks he got the virus while downloading a video on auto repair but while working on it I noticed he had no firewall except for Windows.

I've since installed Zone Alarm.

The computer is running OK except for Firefox loads pretty slow and I cannot access anti-virus or anti-spyware sites or update them.

Some things I did find and quarantined are:

Also a couple of bad cookies found by asquared.

Thanks for any assistance.
