Hi, 2 XP computers on my network were infected with Antivirus Center rogue. I was able to run MBAM successfully and remove the infections. But I notice on both, Windows update will not run. "Security Center" reports the "Automatic Updates" are "Off" but "Automatic Updates" reports "On". If I manually start "Windows Update" from IE it will fail. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Fixed the updates on one PC!!

Need to re-register the windows update dll file

Start - Run

Paste in this command and click OK

%SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\REGSVR32.EXE %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\WUAUENG.DLL

Open up IE - Tools - Windows Update

Good luck!
