Yesterday on closing had the usual "Fixes to download" and let'em get on with it.
On restarting the system was very slow - could not even get into Task Manager & had to power down as nothing had happened for some minutes.
Ran a virus check in safe mode - might be slightly better or I was getting more patient. Did a scandisk - said that some free space .. didn't get the rest as the screen cleared.
Checked Defrag - not needed
Still no real improvement.
Son suggested running Avast as it has a boot time AV function - downloaded & ran it - a few advertising cookies but nothing else.
Down loaded & ran AdAware - no great revelation.
Have downloaded Hijackthis from Trend Micro & run it But NOT taken any action!
Am running out of ideas, any suggestions welcome
Oh, and I tried to restore, only to find that there were no restore points other than yesterday at 13:57 - may be that's a go-er? If it is as a result of the updates then this might get me back?
