Solved Windows Firewall, Updates, Security Center all failing after worm sh292 removal.


Hello Vista People:

I am not a regular here as I don't normally deal with Vista these days but I have a client that had an infection. Eset online scanner showed it as a SH292.vir worm. it was removed and subsequent scans with Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, AVG, Kasperski have all come up clean. Issue is now that Windows Firewall, Windows Update will not run. I was able to repair Security Center using a script I had from 3 years ago on a flash repair drive but I am unable to get the FW or Updates to go. Both say "windows security cannot start the requested service, File not found"

Please advise.
Thank you
