I seemed to have successfully cleaned the fake XP Security Virus which I got earlier today (which I also had last month). However, Windows Security Centre won't allow me turn on Windows Automatic Updates. The red shield with the x is in my tray and clicking on it just results in it telling me that I must go through Control Panel -> System -> Automatic Updates. When I do so, nothing happens. When I try to go the microsoft website, it tells me that Automatic updates are turned off and suggests that I upgrade to Microsoft Update now. Clicking on it results in: "The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem."
Another issue is that Microsoft Security Essentials isn't loading properly upon startup. I don't see the icon in the tray and it isn't updating properly. When I try to update, it says it failed due to internet or network connectivity issues. Error code: 0x80070424.
Do I still have a virus?
