I recently had a rootkit on my computer and now it has been removed. I have not been able to do a windows update since the rootkit showed up on my computer. I am running XP and I used hitman pro 3.6 to clean the rootkit. I can get to the windows update site however when I click express to check for updates the error comes back [Error number: 0x80070424]. Any help would be appreciated.

Have a look at the following:

Repair DLL

and this one:

Unable To Run Win Update

I never make the same mistake twice....I always make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure!
