Hello Cherryan,

Please reboot into safe mode logged in as administrator and run a full
ªntivirus and spyware (open Windows Defender, on the scan page choose Scan
options > Full System Scan (check the boxes below) > click "Run Scan Now" )
scan with the latest signatures to see if that helps.

This isn't guaranteed, but it works for a great many items that at first
appear not to be cleaned in иºяmªl mºde.


Can't hurt to try SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

First - ensure you do not have "Vundo". Clean it up if you do.

It seems possible that your Windows installation has been deliberately
damaged by a trojan (Vundo, along any uninvited guests. (SDBot and ZLOB, all
protected by a rootkit.)) so as to prevent you updating your system or
removing the trojan.


Your first priority must be to cleanse your PC of all malware.


A very good antimalware app is SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware


There is a free version (on demand scanning only), the paid for version
includes active monitoring, similar to Windows defender:

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware MalwareBytes Anti-malware (MBAM)

SUPERAntiSpyware, together with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, are free malaware
scanning application's. Oh, and it sure doesn't hurt to have both of these
applications for multiple layers of protection.


Good luck
