Cry cheesed off after software update!

Hi guys been lurking for a while trying to find the answers but thought I'd post after going around and around.

4 weeks ago for the first time I connected my (nearly 2 yr old) LG 540 to my pc with the intention of uploading some photos. The very first pop up message I got was "there is a software update do you want to install? " - foolishly I clicked yes and received the update.

Since then everything has gone to rat shite

I get "ch 50" cell broadcast txt messages all through the day - I've tried the settings in the messages menu but cant disable them there. I've tried deleting the channel but 50 is undeletable..............then if that wasnt enough I followed some advice from LG helpline to do factory reset to try to resolve this. Did that, and not only did it NOT stop the txt messages which are still plaguing me, but now the Android market is gone..........I can click on the icon but the screen just goes white and hangs.

I should say that at no time have I done any rooting or suchlike.

Heeeeeeeellllllppppppppp!
