I am still having issues with Windows Update. Automatic Updates won't turn on and I've tried to turn it on both ways, through Windows Security Center and through Control Panel. I have run Fix It, AdwCleaner, Malwarebytes. When I run FIX IT I get this message:

"We detected some problems with your system. However we were unable to successfully apply all the fixes. Click Next for other opteions you can try to troubleshoot the problem. Issues found: Windows update components must be repaired. Fix status: not fixed."

When I try Windows Update Agent I get this message:

"install is not needed since Windows update agent is already installed"

When I run this http://www.update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us I get this message:

"The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem. [Error number: 0x80070424]."

Following are the logs from MALWAREBYTES and AdwCleaner. Your help is greatly appreciated!

If you bother to read the first post you will see that fixit has already been tried and failed!!!

Your computer is still infected, the nasty is hiding in your restore points.
Run disk cleanup, click on More Options then System Restore and Shadow Copies and hit the Clean Up button. This will delete all but your newest restore point.

Once that has completed, reboot the computer and run a fresh Mbam scan and post it's latest log here.

Well first off, it wasn't even mentioned which fixit was used which is why I provided a specific one. What it does actually is delete a couple of folders that holds Windows Update info and when run will show as if it was never updated. This then will prompt Windows Update to cancel any pending updates and redownload any other updates not yet installed on windows.

If the thread starter is capable of doing it manually, I suggest he does it that way. The specific folder that needs to be deleted/renamed is the SoftwareDistribution folder usually inside C:\Windows

I have run Fix It, AdwCleaner, Malwarebytes. When I run FIX IT I get this message:

"We detected some problems with your system. However we were unable to successfully apply all the fixes. Click Next for other opteions you can try to troubleshoot the problem. Issues found: Windows update components must be repaired. Fix status: not fixed."

That is a quote taken from the very first post. fixit is mentioned twice!!!

Finally this problem is solved and Windows Update works, the Internet Security virus is gone and Google is back to working correctly. What solved the Update issue was dragging the file into cmd and adding /wuforc. This article http://malwaretips.com/blogs/internet-security-designed-to-protect-removal/ helped solve the virus and Google issue. First, Malwarebytes Chameleon and then Hitman Pro finished off the viruses. Oh yes, and Internet Explorer is not opening windows in the background either!

Thank you all so much for your help! You are the best!

You should still remove all your old restore points as I suggested as a precaution tho!
