For some time now I cant update windows or IE. I'm running XP home and I get a cant display this page message. I cant even access Microsoft.com - same message. I have turned on everything relevant in services and dont believe I have any viruses.

Snrub as Pinging microsoft.com doesn't work, I can't see how that will make a difference

Worth a look or a try.or just check services first to see if they are both set to automatic.

Snrub - tried that,no difference. Run malwarebytes and spybot resident nothing found. In software distribution log found software synchonisation failure note. And auto update and others still being reset to disabled on boot up.

Sorted. followed advice and disabled dns client. Got onto update site which ran after downloading active x control. After restart found that worm: win32/conficker.b had been removed! Thanks again for all the help
