No, I removed Avast a long time ago as I felt it wasn't doing its job. It had an issue shutting itself down again last night and it wouldn't go to sleep either.

Panda...Also, yes, all updates are downloaded and finished. Although, there were some updates to install with the Windows 8.1 Update, and I am not sure they are all installed. Is that a problem? Do I need to install them?

Unfortunately, I don't see any of those updates installed. Does this mean that I will have to remove the Windows 8.1 Update, and install those updates before the 8.1 update?
