See how you get on and report back.
dan :)

There's a tool that's proved effective in restoring all necessary settings, permissions, and files to repair Windows Update issues.

Dial-a-fix

Download it to your Desktop and unzip it.

Next, open the program.

When you first open it, click the Flush Software Distribtution button. Then put a check mark next to these Options:

Under Prep - Empty temp folders
Under WU/WUAU - Stop services, Register WUAU dlls, Start services
Under SSL/HTTPS Cryptography - All
Under Registration center - All

Then click the GO button.
Next, click the Tools button.

Run these by clicking on each one, then clicking the GO button:

Flush DNS
Repair permissions
Reset WMI/WBEM/WinMgmt

Reboot and try Windows Updates or Microsoft Updates again.

Pleased you were able to get your updates :)
Let things settle down and if your still getting problems contact your ISP to see if there is any problems their end, then maybe look at the router.
Or you could post to a forum who specialise in that area of expertise to assist you.

As far as malware on your machine you are clean!
Congratulations and well done for sticking with me.

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

Create a new System Restore Point
This is a good time to clear your existing system restore points and establish a new clean restore point:
  • Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
  • Select Create a restore point, and Ok it.
  • Next, go to Start > Run and type in cleanmgr
  • Select the More options tab
  • Choose the option to clean up system restore and OK it.
This will remove all restore points except the new one you just created.

Here are some free programs I recommend that could help you improve your computer's security.

Spybot Search and Destroy 1.5.2
Download it from here. Just choose a mirror and off you go.
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spybot properly here
Find here changes from older version 1.4 here

Install Spyware Guard
Download it from here
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spyware Guard here

Install SpyWare Blaster
Download it from here
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spyware Blaster here

Install WinPatrol
Download it from here
Here you can find information about how WinPatrol works here

Install FireTrust SiteHound
You can find information and download it from here

Install MVPS Hosts File from here
The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer.
Find Tutorial here : http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm

Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system.
You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.
Secunia Software Inspector
F-secure Health Check

Visit Microsoft often to get the latest updates for your computer.
http://www.update.microsoft.com

Please check out Tony Klein's article "How did I get infected in the first place?"

Read some information here how to prevent Malware.

Happy safe surfing!
