Unsure if 7 issue or downright takeover by windows security?

Hi, I've been trying to download the update for Zone alarm free but windows security keeps telling me there was a virus in the download so it just deleted it? Did the same with AVG as well - in fact it is doing it with anything I try to download????/ Any ideas as to what is happening or how to sort it out?

Hi Jock1e, Dumbo here needs a walk through I'm afraid. Where do I find services: MSE being Microsoft explorer? I get that last bit right then there really is hope for me:-) Action Centre ?????Security UAC???

I'm not being funny - I really am way out of the loop as far as computers are concerned these days.

Jock1e, tried all your links but they didn't really help as it turns out it is a Trojan and quite a nasty one at that. will leave till tomorrow to have a go at it.

This is the link I have found to be most straight forward at fighting it so far.

Thanks for the walk through too - that really did help me understand where to go looking for these things.

all the best
