Hi,

I am using Windows Vista Ultimate 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2 Build 6002 and have recently been infected by the Live Security Platinum virus (PUM.Disabled.SecurityCenter) and have cleaned it using the method from here.

Everything's been going ok actually, except for the fact that now the whole of my Windows Security Center is unusable. I suspect it is due to the system files that were removed or modified during the removal process.

Now Windows Update is not even present in the Services list and Windows Defender gives a "failed to initialize" error.

It would be great if you could shed some light to me for this problem.

Thank you.

Thanks for that.

Some items in Network and Sharing Center doesn't seem to be working. Public folder sharing says "Incorrect Function" after an attempt to turn it on, and Media Sharing is reporting that some of its services are not started either.

No, I'm still not able to open Network Discovery. It's gotten worse actually - now it's saying "The specified service does not exist as an installed service."

Base Filtering Engine started ok but starting Windows Firewall gives the message: "Windows could not start the Windows Firewall on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 5."

Network Discovery and Media Sharing now seem to be on, but my TV still can't discover my PC (it can in the past, wirelessly via Windows Media Sharing)
