If you have updates installed, it should show up in the CCleaner install.txt.

Alternatively, do the following:

Open Notepad and copy and paste the following in the Code box into Notepad:

Code: Select all
if exist C:\updates.txt del /q C:\updates.txt
cd %windir%
dir /a:dh >> C:\updates.txt
cd $hf_mig$
dir /a:dh >> C:\updates.txt
start notepad C:\updates.txt


Click on File > Save As....

In the File Name box, copy and paste in updates.bat

In the Save As Type box, select All Files from the drop-down list.

Click Save.

Double click on updates.bat to run it. Command Prompt will open and close quickly; this is normal. Notepad will open shortly afterwards. Please post the contents of this Notepad file in your next reply.

In the C:\Windows folder, it shows a lack of updates there. You aren't getting some updates.

Regarding the error during the uninstallation of Office, see here - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/217706

This brings us to the questions. Did Microsoft Office came installed with your computer when you bought it? Did you ever buy a copy of Microsoft Office? Have you changed job or has just recently graduated from school? Did you bring this computer to a repair shop before?

There's nothing I can do to help now since you don't have the Microsoft Office Installation CD. Microsoft will not provide updates until there's no illegal Microsoft products on your computer.

Your computer looks clean as far as I can see. Any problems that you are experiencing?

Hi,

Hopefully Microsoft is able to help with your problems. :)

Update Adobe Reader

  1. Please uninstall Adobe Reader 7.0.8 before installing the latest version by going to Start > Control Panel and double clicking on Add/Remove Programs. Locate Adobe Reader 7.0.9 and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it.
  2. Click here to download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
  3. Select your Windows version and click on Download. If you are using Internet Explorer, you will receive prompts. Allow the installation to be ran and it will be installed automatically for you.

    If you are using other browsers, it will prompt you to save a file. Save this file to your desktop and run it to install the latest version of Adobe Reader.
  4. Close your Internet browser and open it again.

Please post back a new HijackThis log after you've updated Adobe.

Click on Start > Run and type in services.msc. Press Enter.

Scroll down to Windows Installer. Double click on it.

Take a screenshot of this window and post back.

The Windows Installer shouldn't start when there are no programs that needs installing. By default, it's set to Manual and it's stopped.

Try downloading and installing Windows Installer.

Restart your computer after installing it, then try updating Adobe again.
