Hello,

 

Thank you for the opportunity to get help from a website like this. Currently, I ran a virus scan on my pc, and removed 25 viruses. All virus scans show negative now, but there still seems to be a problem with my Vista. The windows updates will not install. I downloaded the windows installer, at first it would not install. I ran Microsoft's FIXIT program, and it was later able to install. However, no windows updates will install still. I have tried several times to install the updates. Everytime i do try, I get this error "Code 80070641". Aside from this, the unit is generally slow. I have been working on this problem for the last wk.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much in advance..

I will run a full scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and post the results. This would take almost 2 hours. Thank you.

I am from North America.

Please do not take offense to this, but I do not prefer norton. I have had many viruses on other computer that norton failed to remove them. I just recently removed infections from a laptop with MBAM that had a fully paid norton 360 subscription on it. Norton did not remove the virus programs.

 

Maybe Mcafee would be better?
