For the past month, my Windows 8.1 HP Pavilion Laptop (barely 2 years old) has been having 3 different strange issues out of nowhere and I don't know why (and I've done full scans with my anti-virus and Malwarebytes and they've come up clean). Here are the issues:
1. Every time my computer tries to do Windows Updates, it will download the updates and then try to install, and then I get a message saying, "We couldn't install the updates. Undoing Changes." I've even tried using the Windows Update Troubleshooter tool on Microsoft's website, and even after using that it didn't fix the problem. So I don't know what else to do.
2. When ever I right click on a file, it will hang for about 10 second before it gives me the menu (the properties, copy, cut, delete, rename, etc. menu). It is really a pain and I have no idea what's causing this.
3. I have a program called quietHDD that I launch every time I start up my computer. It always used to stay launched and the icon would stay on my taskbar until I shut down my computer, but lately the program will disappear from the taskbar and close down after a few minutes. I've never had problems with this program before, and I have no idea why it's just shutting down out of nowhere.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should do to fix these problems? Thanks for your help in advance.
