It looks like you are already being helped in this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/623210/new-install-microsoft-updates-blocked/


Please continue in that topic with the instructions received by your helper. Do not start new topics, this will only confuse matters. As this topic appears to be about the same issue, it will be locked.

regards, Elise
