Hello, recently my AVG free has been flashing up about one caught infection a day, a far cry from before my last OS re-install, where it would have been around once a month. Its come to a head now, as my Windows Update has been refusing to update, and when the help box directs me to the WU website, it is always unavailable. Also something in AVG switched itself off, so I decided to try theTechspot Malware 8 steps. I got as far as step 3, which is MBAW. It will not update. Even in safe mode normal and safe mode with networking. I redownloaded, but still no joy. It says: program_error_updating (12007, 0, winhttpsendrequest) There is an alternative way to get the database definitions here (the paragraph If you cannot update MBAM) http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic267354.html but when I click on that link, and try to select the 2nd option (the offline database installer) I get server not found again. On the same page, it says to download SUPERAntiSpyware Free, but the free download just says Server not found. Every solution seems to have another hurdle. So, at this point, I am hereby asking for help. :/ Thanks PS, In my dxdiag, my display device has no real details. Is this weird?
