I got a virus last night.

I was able to get Malwarebytes going, cleaned something and reran and got a clean scan.

I installed Avast Antivirus and got a clean scan.

I ran Spybot Search and Destroy and it found Windows Update Override, etc. I picked the option to clean it.

Restarted computer and still cannot restart my Windows automatic updates. My automatic Windows Updates has been disabled and I cannot get it going again.

Installed SUPERAntiSpyware and it found:
adware.vundo/variant-x32 [header]

I picked the option to quarantine these.

Restarted computer and still there is a red icon in my bottom right sys tray that when I click on it still says Automatic Windows Updates are off. I cannot get them back because when I got into the control panel/Performance and maintenance/system/automatic updates it shows that my automatic updates are on.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can't seem to fix this.

When I got to control panel/system/automatic updates it is is turned on. However, when I click on the Windows Security Alert red icon in the bottom right corner system tray it shows Windows Updates are turned off and I cannot turn them back on there.

Any input would really be appreciated.
