Windows 10 was updating last night and I may have tabbed the power icon to turn it off but can't recall nevertheless this morning I moved my mouse and the update was just finishing.  Then suddenly I noticed a shield with blue and yellow colors with a flashing orange background in my task bar and now nothing works on the task bar.  I did go through task manager to see if anything was obvious but did not see anything (I am higher than a novice but much lower than an expert).  I ran a quick scan with my Panda and found nothing and am running a deep scan.  I also used a microsoft trouble shooter but it found nothing.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you done a restart yet? (not a shutdown)

That did not help however I resolved the problem when I was able to use Microsoft's Malicious Tool Remover.  It got rid of it ASAP!

Good to hear.

 

What was it that it found?

I have no idea.  I ran it and the problem disappeared in an instant.

I believe logs are kept in C:\Windows\Debug\mrt.log if you wanted to know what it was.
