    First, run a virus scan. If your installed antivirus solution is not working, this could be a sign of a serious infection.


    Go to the following website.


    PCs with updated antivirus may be infected:

    At the lower / right side of the screen, click the 'Home Users-Scan Your PC' button. Follow all of the instructions to run the scan. This may include installing an ActiveX Control. This is a very trusted site that is hoighly recommended.


    If the results are negative, try the following. Download and run the System Update Readiness tool (SUR) from the following website. The instructions for doing this are in the article.
