I have 2 Toshiba laptops (from 2014 or so) that I use when I travel for business. They are running Windows 7 - 32-bit. There is nothing on them but McAfee and MS Office. All the work I do, I save to a thumb drive.
I got one of them up and going by installing Windows Updates (system said they had never been installed before - not true). It took 2 days to finally get them all installed - kept crashing and burning.
But the second one is not responding to my "help". Windows Updates are current. McAfee is up-to-date.
Lest I forget, my kids were using these laptops - "JUST to watch YouTube" - ahem.
I'm afraid to install any malware removal software for fear that they too contain malware.
