hi, i was download a software and it had installed several third party applications along with the installation, like wajam and other toolbars and softwares. From previous experience, i know this is malware/spyware so as soon as this was installed, I uninstalled them using Iobit uninstaller to make sure all residual files are deleted as well. After doing this, my computer was normal and adware/spyware free....
The next day, i started having problems, i needed to install adobe creative cloud for a project im working on so I tried to install it. But there was a problem, Adobe desktop installer gets stuck and hangs at "initializing installer" and then after a few minutes an error message shows up which says "We've encountered the following issues: The server is not responding currently. Please try after some time (error code: 207)."
I have tried re-installing and downloading another adobe installer but still I get the same error message. I also have tried on my brother's computer and there is no problem with adobe installer on his computer...
The next problem started with windows updates, I have windows 10. I am stuck at "Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3122947)." and "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3116908)."
it does not seem to download past 0% even after waiting 6 hours
it seems to me like there is a problem with my windows. It also seems like there is a connection between adobe installer error and windows update since both of these depend on communicating through the internet. It seems those third party software that I did not know were being installer corrupted something inside my windows ? how do I repair it ?
