Problem updating programs in Windows vista...

I am taking care of a few things on my friends computer. One of these things included getting rid of the pos mcafee virus scan and loading avira. Everything is working great except when I went to update Avire and windows defender.

Both programs are acting as if there isn't any internet connection. Browsing the web and downloads work great. I have been reading online about certain ports not being open but I have no clue how to change ports for updating these programs..

Windows defender gives me the 0x80244019 error code...

Any help would be great! Thanks..

oh and the specs..

Gateway MT6840 laptop
Core Duo T2450
1014mb ram
Vista 32bit

any firewalls? sometimes McAfee will have a separate firewall you need to uninstall. If blocked by a firewall these programs would not see the internet.

Any other security software? If mulitple security software is on one machine sometimes they fight and block each other

I believe it is a virus of some kind now. Every time I start the computer, the windows firewall is disabled. Even if I enable it before shutdown.. hmm.

avira with the newest definitions dound a few trojans but it didnt help.. I think there is a virus of some kkind that avira cant find.
