Program_error_updating (0,0,I/O error)

Recommended Posts


i have a laptop that has become infected,i installed MWB but i get the error above when i try to update it. I have created an exception in Windows Firewall but that did'nt help. I ran the program as is,and it found 20 instances of pup.mywebsearch which i removed. I did try Superantispyware and that wont update either,perhaps there is more malware preventing these updates? I ran Microsoft Security Essentials first,but it didn't find anything. Several keys on my keyboard have stopped working,i tried to update the drivers and that didn't work. My internet connection is working and i can access the net,but very difficult to download anything or to even access the bios with various key not working. Could these problems be related?

Any help would be appreciated

Thank you
