Re: [In Progress] Multi threat adware: search redirected

So far so good!  Every disabled function, except one, is restored, which is saying alot (thanks): searches are no longer redirected, Malwarebytes installs and runs fine, I can access all websites.

As far as I can tell only one issue remains. windows updates. I can now addess the website which checks for and downloads the updates.  [The latest is Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1 (KB110806) (x86)]

Unfortunately, when I try to install the latest update.  I get the message:

Installation Failure

"Error Code: 0x80246008 
Try to install the update again, or request help from one of the following resources. . . ."

I have tried to install sever times no luck.

Almost all issues resolved!  This is saying alot.  Searches are no longer redirected, I can run Malwarebytes, I can access any web site again.  But I still cannot install Microsoft updates.  I can check for the latest updates I need [which is Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1 (KB110806) (x86)] but it will not install. I get the error message:

Hey I found the final fix my self.  Using the same database you accessed for your last post, I found another article, followed the steps and resolved the problem.

The malware must have either corrupted the BITS registration or some of the files in the Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader folder. 

In any case, the protocol in this article, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/916251, resolved my windows update problem.

Thanks again for you help!

Scott
