I cannot download Vista updates

  radimek 12:15 27 Apr 08

Hello guys,

I would really appreciate your valuable advice how to sort this out.
I have recently installed Spyware Terminator and since then it seems I cannot download any updates for Vista. When attempting to download updates, halfway through the process a message pops up on the screen saying something about 'blocking the file svchvost.exe'.

What shall I do?
Thank you,

Turn off ST before downloading.

Hi Anskyber,

OK. Do you know how to turn it off?

Well right now I have 60 suspicious objects in my computer. That is not possible since I ran a safe mode antivirus scan a two days ago and have compatible computer protection suite.
Hereby I mean Vista firewall and AVG Kaspersky.

Once you ran your scans in safe mode and deleted anything that they found you could then have run C Cleaner And then maybe stopped your system restore from working.If your spelling was correct then you do have problems on your computer.If it is AVG 8 anti-virus it shows false positives from spywareblaster.
