Welcome to Malwarebytes :welcome: Perhaps we sould address the computers one at a time or So we don't get mixed up, Computer #1 and Computer#2. Can you post back with your Computer#1 your operating system, security software, firewalls, tell us all about the pc and its issues.

EDIT: When you say:

It says their is updates
I can only guess your MS downloads are turned off - or you want to be notified 1st! Or something is blocking it? Spybot has a tea timer, which may be an issue? But on which computer? Post back with the computer that is giving you an issue.... one of us here will reply & help you out, if needed? anytime....regards...

Comp 1 (the one that doesn't work) Windows 7, Microsoft Security Essentials, Spy Bot S&D, and Spyware Blaster, Malware bytes. Comp 2 (one that works) Windows 7, Microsoft Security Essentials, Spy Bot S&D, and Spyware Blaster.

I have Firewall also and I don't know alot about computers so like i might need intermediate or easy explanations D:

Assuming Comp #1 and Comp #2 share the same internet connection and one works and the other does not, then it is possible that Comp #1 may have something on it blocking those updates.

Why don't you let the experts help you out with ONLY COMP#1 over at the HJT section....

Please read the following so that you can begin the cleaning process:

As we don't deal with malware removal in the General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum, you need to start a topic in the Malware Removal forum so a qualified helper can help you fix any malware related problems/infections you may have.

  • Please read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then post a NEW topic here.
  • After posting your new post, make sure under options, you select Track this topic and choose Immediate Email Notification, so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.
  • One of the expert helpers there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.
  • Please refrain from making any further changes to your computer (Install/Uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc...) unless advised by a malware removal helper. Doing so can result in system changes which may hinder the attempts by a helper to clean your machine.

NOTE: Please DO NOT post back to (bump) your topic within the first 48 hours.

Replying to your own posts changes the post count and helpers are looking for topics with zero replies. If you reply to your own post helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus overlook your post.

    • If there is no reply from any experts after 48 hours, you can reply to the topic, asking for help again.
    • You may send a Private Message to a Moderator asking for assistance.

Alternatively, as a paying customer, you can contact the help desk at support@malwarebytes.org or here.

Please be patient, someone will assist you as soon as it is possible.

PS: Please use the "ADDREPLY" t_reply.gif button instead of other ones when you start replying. :welcome:
