I am running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. The machine has been running good until a few days ago and now everything starts very slow, the screen freezes so I have to power cycle the machine to recover. I run virus, spyware and malware scans routinely. I have been told that sometimes this type of problem is caused by a "bad" Windows update which I have set to automatically run each day at 3 a.m.
If I do a system restore to a previous point in time any Windows updates will be removed (I think) back to that point in time. If a Windows update is indeed causing this issue when the machine checks for new updates again I am assuming the same "problem" update will be downloaded and re-installed.
Can I please have some thoughts on this?
