Go to www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/combofix/ and download ComboFix.exe
run it. Have a lot of patience. It goes though like 100 stages and reboots but it works.
I did for me!
Solved! Go to Solution.

USERS DO NOT run combofix without trained guidance, it is a powerful tool that can cause problems with the system
Even the creators state this and not to run it
I have had to get system back after running combofix and other tools, but I am in the correct field to do so.
And it's not 100 stages, thread creator can't even get that correct.

I addressed this in a separate thread, albeit perhaps with too much diplomatic finesse.
What Quads said - do NOT use ComboFix.exe without expert tutelage and supervision.
If it's a problem with Microsoft (or Windows) Update, then it's most probably a Windows problem, not an AV software issue. Try the solutions on Microsoft's support website. For issues with Windows/Microsoft Update in Win XP, see KB 943144. Try the Microsoft Fixit tool first (it will pop-up when you go to the web page. It's so simple that even a caveman or my brain-damaged nephew can use.
