  • Hi M.Afshar,

    You may have a problem with your keyboard or mouse, or you may have a virus.  Is it a laptop computer?

  • thanks for your attention,

    no it's a desktop pc, and i'm sure that it's not a problem with my keyboard or mouse, because i have the same problem with my office pc. i think it's a virus, but question is that which virus? and how can i solve the problem? how can i remove that virus?

  • You can download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner, here:

  • Restart the computer in "Safe Mode with Networking", and run the program update again.  To do this, press F8 before Windows starts up, to get to the Boot Options menu.

  • Hi VF.  I'm recommending this Safety Scanner, but I can't even get it to run myself.  I keep getting a "side-by-side" error when I try to install it.  I had this on my previous 32 bit Win7, and now again on my 64bit Win7.  This is very frustrating.  Any ideas?

    I have posted this problem to the proper forum, but it's the weekend, so no-body home.

  • If you believe its a virus you can use a LIVE cd to scan. Avasti and ubuntu are a great combination that can be run from a CD/DVD or a flash drive see here:
