"Microsoft Update is not installed


Some missing updates cannot be detected without Microsoft Update

Please click the button below to open the Microsoft Update site and follow the instructions to install Microsoft Update


Install Microsoft Update"


When I click the Install Microsoft Update button IE opens to update.microsoft.com or www.update.microsoft.com where I am prompted to install an update script/app for Windows Vista (i am running Windows 8.1)


When I tested the ssl server - https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=update.microsoft.com it comes back as being untrusted.  I noticed when I tested the MS update site yesterday, I was seeing ssllabs as being secure with EV credentials, today it is encrypted however I no longer get the EV credentials.


windowsupdate.microsoft.com is redirected to www.update.microsoft.com


The certificate chain states:


Certification Paths Path #1: Not trusted (path does not chain to a trusted anchor) 1 Sent by server www.update.microsoft.com

RSA 4096 bits (e 65537) / SHA1withRSA
Weak or insecure signature, but no impact on root certificate


I take to mean that fraudulent certificates have been added to my PC and perhaps legitimate certs have been removed.


Any thoughts or ideas here? Im not sure what to do.

I came across this not long ago myself. Luckyly I did not click on anything, but even then Superantispyware blocked and removed 15 spywares installed the few minutes I was looking at the site.  This was a redirect to a page pretending to be secunia.  Run every thing you have or can get your hands on.  You have probably picked up something you really don't want.


Seeing your post reminds me that this happened to me not long before my system became so corrupted that windows update quit working. Took 2 days and several different people and a whole slew of tools to correct.


May not happen to you but I would get ready.
