Also, when I try to access Windows Update via Control Panel, the window starts to open, but just hangs. I've tied running Microsoft FixIt, but it seems to start loading, but just hangs hangs as well. Windows Update service is started, but when I try to restart (stop/start it), it eventually fails. This is my father-in-law's PC, so I'm not sure what all he has done to it. He has multiple PC Boosting type apps on it unfortunately. If he tries to run one of them, it successfully scans, but when you attempt to clean/repair it, it starts to run (a few progress bars), but hangs. This is happening on multiple scanning apps. Any help would be appreciated.
