I posted this in the virus forum, but I didn't get any replies. I don't even know if I have a virus. Has anybody had this issue?

My Windows update won't stay on. Everytime I turn it on, it turns off after about 10 minutes or so (and notifies me with a message balloon). I have scanned my computer with various antivirus/antispyware programs, but everything comes up clean.

It seems like I have some sort of virus, but I can't detect it. Has anybody else seen this behavior with Windows Update? Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks.

Pat

Also, I am running Windows 7, 64-bit, Home Edition.

Wait until you get a response back from the malware Team.

Do you know how long that typically takes? It's been over 24 hours. I know nobody is under any obligation to answer my question, but I figured if somebody had an idea, I would have at least been asked for more info or something by now. So I thought nobody in that forum had any ideas. Which is why I posted it here.

This is my first post on this site, so I don't really know what the typical waiting time is. I'm not even sure if it is a virus, since I've run multiple antivirus/spyware programs, all coming up clean.

Anyway, if I need to wait another 24 hours or 72 hours or whatever, that's fine. I'm just wanting to know what is typical. I'll wait the appropriate time, whatever that is, before posting again. Thanks for any input.

Well first of all you posted in the Am I Infected Forum, is that what you wanted? Or did you want the Malware Removal Logs Forum?

I am new to this site. I posted to the Am I Infected forum first, because I really don't know if I am infected. I thought that's what I was supposed to do. But whatever forum is appropriate, I will post it there.

Since I never got any suggestions on what to do to fix my problem, I just wiped the disk and reinstalled the OS. Good luck to everybody else.
