On startup I get a popup box with "Initialization Error - error code: 0x80073b01 for MS Security Client", with a selection of choice of "OK".  This issue isn't malware related because I had an earlier topic http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/516854/initialization-error-error-code-0x80073b01-for-ms-security-client/?view=getnewpost that was used to finish the malware removal process.  Also when I shutdown my PC, I get a message to not force a logoff because 1 of 3... updates are being installed, even though my MS Security is up to date.
