"windows-update" in URL causes error - Virus?
Posted on 2010-08-29
Recently I got infected by some malware and it took me some time to get my computer saying its clean again (via several virus checkers). The Malware effected all my browsers winlogin.exe and explorer.exe.
However, I just noticed that I have lost access to windows update. I am getting this error (I used Chrome to view the error):
Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Unknown error.
What makes this very suspicious is if I include the word "windows-update" in any URL in any browser I get that error. So something is blocking me from accessing any URL with "windows-update" in it.
I have also noticed that I often have trouble getting links to work in Chrome. some link clicks never end up returning the new page.
