hello . i recently installed ie7 and followed the instructions about shutting down windows automatic updater and my internet security and messenger etc etc . the install went without a hitch and everything ran fine with it and i liked the new setup and all, i used it for several weeks and then i went to windows updates website and it scanned for new updates and listed about 5 updates for my pc . then i clicked on to install updates and the update downloader comes on saying downloading new updates but noting happens and after a good while it shows that it couldnt install updates and when you click on the red x or even cancel then it freezes up and i have to use task manager to shut it down . and after the error report comes on it dirrects you to the microsoft support website and shows up a list saying that my pc might be infected with a virus but my pc is clean ive run windows live and norton and avg deep scans and they show my pc is clean . didnt have any issues with any downloading untill ie7 and the microsoft or windows update website is the only place i have any problems with ive uninstalled and went back to ie 6 but it still does the same thing . i would really appreciate any help on this cause i dont know what else to do ive looked everywhere and cant get anywhere with microsoft support on this . im stumped
