    Havn't had any automatic updates since november, when I try to update
    manually the program goes into "looking for updates for you computer" and
    locks up . A similar problem happens when I try to download IE8, the prgram
    goes into the download mode and stays there , locks up. I get no error
    Can anyone help??

    You are seeing the affects of a hijackware infection.

    1. See if you can download/run the MSRT manually:

    2. Run the Windows Live Safety Center's 'Protection' scan (only!) in Safe
    Mode with Networking, if need be:

    3. Run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting the requested
    logs in an appropriate forum, not here.

    Checking for/Help with Hijackware

    **Seek expert assistance in
    http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30, or other appropriate forums.**

    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.
    Start a free Windows Update support incident request:

    Support for Windows Update:

    For home users, no-charge support is available by calling 1-866-PCSAFETY in
    the United States and in Canada or by contacting your local Microsoft
    subsidiary. There is no-charge for support calls that are associated with
    security updates.
