    Just turned on my laptop and randomly got this error:

    [​IMG]

    Everytime I go to click one of the options, it brings the box back up again. I have no discs in my laptop and when I press Ctrl,Alt and Delete, and go to processes and try to end it, it tells me my computer will automatically shut down if I choose to end it.

    What do I do? HELP!

    Windowsupdateservice.exe IS NOT a windows program. It is a virus.

    Reboot into safe mode and clean up your system
