I am unsure if I'm infected or not. Recently, I've been having problems where any web browsing is really, really slow or completely freezes the web browser. I've ran Malwarebyte Anti-Malware but nothing came up. I have problems even running Youtube in a different web browser. And it's not my internet connection, because it's hard wired in a decent connection.

Also, for a while now, every time I turn on the computer, it shows I have Windows updates. I tell it to install when it shuts down, but it never does. Then next time I log on, it says it again. Tonight I tried installing it before shutting down, but here is what I got.

Some updates could not be installed
The following updates were not installed:
Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008 x86 (KB2656370)
Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008 x86 (KB2656353)
Security Update for Windows XP (KB2481109)

It's been like that (not updating) for months. I just am unsure why everything has slowed down or started having problems frequently. I run CCleaner from time to time and also have Avast installed and it says the system is currently secure.

Any help or suggestions?

I think it's best to create a DDS-log, the experts of the Malware Removal Team will view your DDS-log.

1. Follow the instructions "Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help" and create a DDS-log.

2. Create a new topic into the forum "Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs" and then past the DDS-log into that topic:
