Dear All,


I have a small problem with "Windows Update" and have been communicating with "sickntired" and "L1NGUS" over on the "Windows Vista" forum under the heading "Windows Update- is it working ?!"


We've established that "updates" are still being supplied/downloaded OK but the "View Update History" page is empty (apart from this month's update).


As you will see, "sickntired" and "L1NGUS" suggested that malware may be present. You will also see that I've run "Malwarebytes" a couple of times and found umpteen "PUP.Optional.Conduit" items which have been quarantined.

So, have you any provisional thoughts on my problem and can you help at all ? If so, what other information do you need ?


Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.


NB:I also have one or two other "minor irritation" on my computer----- "Snipping Tool" won't work, "sfc/ scannow" won't work fully, can't establish whether "CHKDSK" works or not, in "Windows Security" Centre", "Automatic Updating" is invariably "Off" and I have to turn it on manually, AND, I've just typed all of this into "Notepad" and tried to copy and paste it here and failed (!)--- so had to type it again!
