Some virus programs stop you from getting updates from the anti-virus sites. Download a antivirus program form another computer and transfer via CD drive.
so by installin a second anti-virus via cd? scan with AVG. ok so I will hav 2 anti-viruses installed. my first anti-virus is norton360.AVG-free detected risks and I downloaded a removal tool for Win32/virut plus deleted 3 files in my program files ..still internet running slow for nortons 360 and live update library Error 1000
Thanks for a very simple yet effective solution. The solution worked for me. I killed "SVCHOST" process in Network Service & lowest memory usage.
thanks gaurav
where is network service?
find viruses in this box also
click on start ---> Run
type ---> dxdiag
Click ----> OK


click on start ---> Run
type ---> msconfig
Click ----> OK


Many online antiviruses websites are available try it
Its due to spyware in your sytem, You can see internet doesnot work properly , Microsoft site cannot open, antivirus cannot be update and also opened

the best solution is download superantivirus software from link I had given below

Reboot the system after you run and scan. It will defenitely work! Thanks!
