I somehow got a virus by the name of Trojan-Dropper.Gen according to Vipre AV/AS but MSSE DID update and is currently scanning and MBAM didn't update and is also scanning haven't picked up any contacts on the scope yet, any ideas?

Download HijackThis! (http://free.antivirus.com/hijackthis/), run it, and compare your log file to this one: http://forums.techguy.org/malware-removal-hijackthis-logs/734396-trojan-dropper-gen.html. Like the link says, it's probably a false positive, though.

No, albeit I'm no genius at computers, I know that MBAM ain't gonna stop working after 3 virus attacks.

False positives don't mean it's not working... it just means that it's detected something that isn't really malware.
