When I start up my laptop and get to desktop, avast and SAS icons don't appear in system tray even though task manager says they are running. Sticky notes also doesn't appear like it normally does.
There are 3 or 4 chrome processes that I see in task manager as well as an HGWC.exe that can't be ended with end task. I get an access is denied error when I do so. I know HGWC belongs to one of my games but having uninstalled that game the .exe is still in manager even after restart as well as a folder that says I need permission to delete even though I'm administrator.
Help please?

Wow. I restarted the laptop instead of shutting it down and turning it back on. Got a windows update thing after pressing restart and when it got to desktop afterwards, things were back to normal. Think I solved my problem.
