    I can not turn on my automatic updates. I tried everything, I when to
    services and tried to turn them on,nothing happen. Then an error came up and
    said that the service is either disable or there is no device. Something like
    that. So now when I go to Windows update, it takes me to a page with the
    error number:0x80070442 and telling me that all the services are not started.
    Also everytime I go to automatic updates in services and press apply it just
    disables itslef again.Another thing is I can't use my internet to browse and
    spam and pop-ups keep coming up. I've had this problem for more that 2 week
    and its really pissing me off because my laptop is garbage now.And I don't
    want to format it. So please can someone help me with this problem?

  2. Judging by the ever-increasing number of posts here in the past few months
    that are similar to yours, the behavior may be due to a Vundo-ZLOB-SDBot
    infection, all protected by a rootkit infection.

    When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
    (http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe) is the preferred tool to use (in
    conjuction with some other utilities). HijackThis will NOT fix anything on
    its own, but it will help you to both identify and remove any
    hijackware/spyware with assistance from an expert. **Post your log to

    by an expert in such matters, not here.**

    If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
    isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
    independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.

    Thanks for your help. But I found another form that said to run a program
    call superAntivirus. I scaned my computer and it found lots for things, then
    I restarted my computer. When to services and started automatic updates and
    everything worked. But before that I remove a folder in
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv.
    Would that effect anything?

    Also when all for that was finish, i went on to that internet and It was
    still not searching anything it didnt go anywhere. But I was able to go to
    the windows update page by clicking the windows update icon.
    Can you help me with this problem?

    No anti-spyware application or online scan is going to resolve this problem.

    "Automatic Update" it is stoped in your Services. This is the cause of this error.
    So... go to the "Services" and set "Automatic Update " to "Automatic" (or "Manual") and than open MSE and update it !
