I could sure use some help with my friends computer.  When I first got the computer I cleaned 18 trojan viruses off of the computer and haMicrosoft d a problem saying the keycode was wrong.  That was also a hoax. 


It finally became so unstable trying to clean it that I used the HP Recovery Module.  I backed up all the data and then restored the laptop.  It is running extremely well except for the fact that i can't get Windows Update to run.


I have tried:  using msconfig,  

                     Microsoft Mr. Fixit for Windows Update

                     Ran a SFC /scannow (showed no errors)


I ure could use some ideas so I can get this laptop working.  I have looked all over the internet and tried several suggestions.


Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.

Here's a BleepingComputer posting worthy of a read......




Keep in mind that what works well for one may not for another. But I have used the procedures outlined above with very good success. Others here may post other remedies to try.


Keep us posted!
