I am helping a friend that brought me a Windows 7 Enterprise Laptop. It had several different virus programs installed and were all trying to run at the same time.
I cleaned the computer and after deleting the virus programs, I installed Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows 7. It installed, updated, and ran a full scan. The computer is clean.
I installed Malawarebytes, updated, and ran a full scan. It did find several threatware which I removed. I installed Ccleaner and it found over 6,000 plus megs of junk ware which I removed. The computer seems to be running well but I do have a question.
When I go to Windows Update, it says that Windows has no updates but I also see that it has a message "Windows Update is managed by your System Administrator" There is also one that says Windows Update is managed by Microsoft.
Is this a problem. I am also seeing that Windows Firewall can't be updated because it is being controlled by Group Policy.
If anyone can tell me what else I can do to clean up this computer I would sure appreciate it.
