I have been getting notifications about turning on my spyware and virus protection on windows 8.1. These messages are coming through windows defender. when i click to turn them on it gives me a error code: 0x80073b01. I have followed the instructions on Malware Removal Guide for Windows - Select Real Security but the messages still persist. Hope someone can help.

Many thanks,

Hi goatherbs

This is most likely a Zeroaccess infection and we should get a deeper look. Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.
