This issue has only been occurring for a day. I have done spyware/virus scans for the past 10 hours and have removed several trojans, but the problem still seems to persist.
Windows auto suggest that I receive the latest updates (which I don't think is the problem, my updates are very recent). However, when trying to use Windows Update I get error 80072efd, a connection issue from what I've read, and I suspect a culprit....seeing as my firewall has never caused any problems, and I even disabled it to test this.

Also I have several copies of svchost.exe in my task manager, which I find suspicious. Full Screen Picture

Would very much appreciate if someone helped me get rid of this annoyance :thumbsup:

edit: I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium SP2
