Hello

So I have windows XP S2. For some reason my windows Update doesnt work, when i click on the link it goes to google.com and I have no idea why. When I try to download an update it says "Page cannot be displayed" or "Failed to connect". Can someone help me? my automatic updates are on and im trying to get Service pack 3.

Download Dial-A-Fix, and fix Windows Update.

This might be malware related, so read this guide: http://www.geekstogo...uide-t2852.html
Once you do all the steps, then post in the Malware forum with all the required logs.
