First of all, compliments of the season to one and all from a very grey UK. I would be grateful for any help with a problem I have connecting to my wireless home internet that I think is virus related. I have a Samsung netbook which has a built in SIM card for connection to the internet, it's with Vodaphone. A while back we got a wireless router at home so I can connect via either and have been doing so without problem for several weeks. For the past few days I haven't been able to connect via the home system, although I can through the mobile broadband system. Additionally I definately have not been getting updates from Microsoft. I cannot seem to even download them manually. I've run Malwarebytes with the latest update but it shows nothing. I also have a 'Windows Security Centre' icon on the bottom right which is showing me that Automatic Updates is switched off, is this icon legit or a virus? I downloaded Microsoft Security Essentials and everytime I boot the system it tells me there is the Alureon.E trojan but despite several cleans it never seems to go.

Any help would be appreciated.
