    Well, the virus apparently relinquishes your administrative powers from the computer, as it prevents me from opening any programs. I'm currently scanning my computer with a full Virus Scan and Spyware, and then I'm going to restart hopefully ending this.

Webroot updates never happen Webroot updates are turned on but nothing happens when I try and manually or auto update


Try to access an anti virus online scanner then try to access windows update if you are unable to access these sites you have Win32.Worm.Downadup.Gen. It prevents any access to any anti virus software and windows updates it also turns off any installed anti virus updates. Removal is actually really simple just go here

Have you tried AVG antivirus webpage? They have a free version of their software, 100% usable at :

Per their website, there is the following info on your worm:
The first version of this virus which is recognized by AVG as Downadup (alternativelly I-Worm.Generic) has been detected at the end of November / begining of December, 2008. Currently there are over 300 unique versions of this virus. AVG detects and protects against all known variants of the worm.
Hope it takes care of it. If not let me know and I'll help you with fixing it so AVG does its job.

How can i delete multiple operating system


Right Click on My Computer, Click on Properties, Click on Advanced, under System Start-Up and Recovery Option, Click on Settings then Under The default Operating System you should see, The Time taken to dislplay list of OS and recovery Options When needed, just change the two numbers from 30 to '0', then click on OK, and restart your system. This will stop you from seeing Multiple OS When you boot up your system...and will go directly to your default.
Hope It Helps!

I can not get my laptop to turn on.


The Conflicker worm will execute at start-up and a predetermined date/time regardless of battery removal. If you did have the virus (very possible), and you started your system, you will have destroyed the boot sector of the hard disk necessary for Windows to operate properly.

Your solution is to use your factory restore disk to wipe the drive and re-install Windows.

Use a robust anti-virus program like NOD32/ESET after you restore your system. They have a 30 day free trial, and it's well worth the price of 50 dollars a year to protect yourself from further attack.
