About 10 days ago I had a virus that now appears to be gone. Though I cant be 100% sure since I haven't been able to run a comprehensive virus scan. I think its clean because of some random tests I ran for a specialist on another forum, who said it is. I posted all sorts of complicated logs, so I trust what he said is true.

With that said, I haven't been able to update MSE since. I don't know if these 2 matters are related or not. When I tell MSE to update it says it couldn't check for one due to an internet or connectivity issue.

I dont know why this would be, I'm on it fine. Can anyone advise?

I'm using Win XP btw, I believe home edition though cant swear to it.

Btw as a side note, my computer has been functioning really slowly last few days / weeks. My C: has 149 GB space, of which 19 GB is free, so a decent amount. There's 2 GB RAM.

Just as a test, try running the XP defrag tool.

If there is insufficient space, you should get an error message.
