Hello all,

Since I removed a windows restore virus with the help of Bleeping computer I have been unable to turn on my Windows Automatic Updates. I have tried doing so in the windows security centre and control panel to no avail and when I try to download updates manually from here-http://www.update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us, the process alaways fails.

When I attempted the following resolution it failed because it cannot find the file specified (error 2) when I try to start the Background Intelligent Service.

1. Set Background Intelligent Transfer Service to Automatic and verify the Status is Started.
Click Start.
Choose Run.
In the Run box, type services.msc.
Click OK.
Find the Background Intelligent Transfer Service service, and right-click to select it.
Select Properties.
In the Startup Type list, select Automatic.
Verify the service Status is Started.
Click OK.

Any suggestions much appreciated.

Can you post any logs from the scans you did?
