My computer has been running slow for the past couple of days so I a scan with Malware bytes and found that there were 2 problems. One of the fake Antivirus programs and a root key. I click resolve and it took care of the problem. I then did a quick scan using my Norton program. My PC is still kind-of freezing up and running sort of slow.
I click on Windows update and saw that there was an important update, and it says that it has tried to run it but it keeps failing. The report shows that it has been failed for several months.

Here's the report:

Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 Security Update for Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 (KB953297)
Installation date: ‎4/‎30/‎2011 12:02 AM

99% of the time I am using FF, the other percent I use IE.
I am running Windows Vista Home Premium x32
I run Norton Internet Security 2011
