I have read many threads but feel that my situation is still unique.

I can't use Windows Update. Error Number: 0x80070424

Deleted SVC PACK 2 and Ran my XP Pro disc.

Afraid I re-installed SVC PACK 2 while still infected.

I Steamrolled and weeded Trojans and Adware until I was blue in the face.
(Spy Sweeper) Deleted Mcafee and installed Norton 2005. Norton has
updated to a degree online, but has a "couldn't create callback object" preventing me from downloading the latest updates.

I fixed the desktop issue using another thread on this site. Thanks!

I think I may still be infected, and I have issues with Windows since I
cannot use Windows update.

I need to know in which order I should proceed. Should I delete my anti virus and spyware software before any processes, and what should be done in safe-mode and or under the administrator feature.

I have been trying to fix this for many days now and am at wits end :tazz:
