    From your headers: Outlook Express 6.00.2900.3311

    Open Internet Explorer (only) to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com | Select
    CUSTOM and scan | Install any Critical Security Updates offered (e.g.,
    KB980182; KB978542). If a Root Certificates update is listed in the
    Optional Software updates category on the left-hand side of the scan results
    window, install it to take full advantage of IE's enhanced security.

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    custom selected http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com no updates
    I am using Avast free and MS security essentials
    never had Norton,did have AVG free,but have removed
    I did try to fool MS into letting me reinstall IE6+ using the method below
    (from Bleeping computer.com)

    Follow these steps for repairing Internet Explorer 6:
    1. Click on the Start button and then click on the Run option.
    2. In the Open field type regedit and press the OK button.
    3. Navigate to the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active
    Setup\Installed Components\{89820200-ECBD-11cf-8B85-00AA005B4383}
    4. Under that key you will see a entry named IsInstalled. Right click on
    that entry and left
    click on Modify.
    5. Change the Value from 1 to 0.
    6. Exit regedit.
    ******************************
    unfortunatly this will not work,
    Have you any idea's as to how I could re-install IE6+ ?

    You should have only one (1) anti-virus application installed and loading at
    boot. You have two (2). Uninstall Avast or MSE & reboot...THEN check-in at
    Windows Update again because the computer still isn't fully-patched (and
    hasn't been for two year or more).

    NB: If you got infected while you had AVG installed, see...

    Can I install Microsoft Security Essentials [or any other
    anti-virus/anti-spyware application] to clean up my already-infected
    computer?
