My antivirus software (avast 5) detected a virus on my laptop. I proceeded to clear it. A couple days later I noticed google would redirect me to other websites, and on the second attempt it would not connect to the website. Also I could not connect to certain websites like avast.com or microsoft.com. I scanned my laptop again but nothing was detected. I decided to restore my laptop back to before when I got the virus. It seemed to fix the problem with redirecting and loading avast.com and microsoft.com. I then attempted to use Windows Update to update my laptop but it will not connect and gives the following error message:
Code 80072EFE Windows Update encounted an unknown error.
Anyone know how to fix this?
