Windows 7 malware and update problems

Hi
I have a Windows 7 Pro 32-bit laptop that had the istart123.com virus or malware or whatever they're categorizing it as these days among other problems, I presume. After running all the usual stuff (Malwarebytes, Spybot, adwcleaner, hitman, combofix, tweaking windows, ccleaner), I noticed that Windows updates are failing. Their are currently 4 updates failing and during my quest for resolution, I've come across other problems that might be related.
Currently I'm getting .net framework update errors Code 8007371B, and Code 8024200D. I'm kind of embarrassed I've spent so much time on this but it's become personal now as I've tried just about everything. I've attached a couple logs after running sfc /scannow and DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /scanhealth and discovered some corruption starting at "Cannot repair member file [l:30{15}]"setupcompat.dll" or at about 14% on SFC. Please take a look and see what you think. The one thing I haven't done is a repair from disc as I don't have the Windows 7 disc here with me at the moment and won't be able to get them from the lab for a couple days. Hoping to be done with this before I go back in.

Thanks!



with that much problems and scans run, i would backup and do a fresh install - delete the os partition during install) - it will save time in the end, and insuresyou a clean system !

You can try resetting the Windows Updates components using the steps in this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

I'd tend to agree with nobus though, I'd personally back up all my data then do a complete reinstall of Windows. This will give you a clean system to work with and you won't have to worry about any lingering malicious files on your machine.



Is there a free download for a Windows 7 Pro iso or something I can run a repair on the corrupted system files?



try downloading the iso files here : http://www.howtogeek.com/186775/how-to-download-windows-7-8-and-8.1-installation-media-legally/
