Windows keeps asking for required updates it tries to down load but it never accomplishes the down load there Micro soft is showing my computer needs 10 security updates and my computer will not do the down loads and I keep getting a message to update.

My computer keeps getting slower. I think I may have a trojan or spyware?

It's possible you do have some kind of malware.

Hi kvos and welcome,

Are you running any security software like Norton or McAfee? Try disabling your firewall.
