I have a Toshiba Satellite C-55 B. with Windows 8.1. Processor is Intel Celeron N2830 CPU @ 2.16 GHz. RAM is 4.0 GB with 3.89 usable and it is a 64 bit system. Security is Panda Antivirus Pro 2015 and Super Anti-Spyware Version 6.0.1186. I also had Win Patrol, but it was a freebie and I deleted it after problems started. I also have CCleaner and use it about every 2-4 weeks.
About a month ago I started getting a message during start up saying updates were processing, followed by a message saying they could not finish, followed by a final message saying changes were being undone and I should not turn off my computer. This is followed up by a fresh start up screen. This routine happens every time I do a start up.
Also, I deleted Win Patrol, however, sometimes the icon will show up in the tray at the far right and if clicked upon, Win Patrol control screen will appear. I can not find any sign of this program either through change/delete programs by Windows or by Revo Uninstaller. I uninstalled this program through it's own uninstaller. I have checked program and program 86 files and don't see this program in either one.
My question is, AM I INFECTED or is there a glitch somewhere in Windows 8.1? Thank you.
Please excuse me if I don't respond to your reply for a day or 3. My husband is dying and I want to make sure the computer is working because I will have many notices to send out and research to do in the future. I hope you understand.
