Virus cannot update MBAM error 12007

Recommended Posts

Now this is my first post so take it easy on me, I'm a noob. I was just surfing the web minding my own business when a cheesy little icon ,telling me my computer was infected and needed to be cleaned blah blah, popped up. No biggie to me at first, my thought was "just open up malwarebytes and update it, and if the virus closes it restart to safe mode and do the scan" well that's worked in the past but today when i tried to update it an error popped up saying "PROGRAM_ERROR_UPDATING (12007, 0, winhttpsendrequest)". Then malware bytes closed (thanks to the virus) and upon scanning in safe mode nothing has changed and I'm still infected. I think recall having this very same virus before, but it didn't block the update. I've tried putting an updated version on a flash drive from another computer and putting it on my laptop but that didn't work, it just said "database outdated by 9 days" and prompted me to update. I know i just need to update it and it'll kick this things ass, but how? Help me please and I'll be forever indebted to you. My OS is windows XP home edition. I'm not quite sure of whether it's 64 BIT or something else because i can only get on safe mode without this thing wreaking havoc. I can't even run DDS or GMER without the thing telling me it's infected. What should i do?
