Hi Ed,

The big check/fix, was SURT KB947821.

It found 200+ errors annoted f and the ones it fixed annoted fix, in the line immediately below it.
It left 8 unresolved, which is why i asked you to run Sfc.
The odd thing is that its still reporting 200+ errors
Did you REBOOT between running SURT and Sfc
If not please do so

can you then rerun SURT kb947821 it shouldn't take as long, he said hopefully.
post the new log, would only like to see 8 errors


As for the errors themselves they all appear to be related to a corrupt install/uninstall of Avast.
unfortunately just uninstalling it does NOT repair the problems.

Running KB947821. Installed updates - sitting on Initializing Installation for at least half an hr.
Is that normal?

Hi Ed,

No Avast/AVG are different.

It was on your system at some stage please uninstall it in Safe mode
Avast Uninstall Utility | Download aswClear for Avast Removal

to remove an update
Control panal >> Windows Updates >> installed updates(bottom left) >> right click on it uninstall.

The clearer is running, for about 5 min. now - How long might it take? Does it need an internet connection?
I think I ran safe mode with the Network connection, not quite sure.

Some updates on experiences in the meantime, not sure if any might be applicable.
Late yesterday a new issue was that right clicking on a folder, left or right pane, in WE, and choosing properties gave no results. Got up this morning and found about a dozen properties windows open.

When I first restarted my computer to go to Safe Mode just now I was not paying attention and went past the opportunity to choose safe mode, so I did an immediate restart - the closing down screen stayed on an extremely long time - > 15 minutes, until I finally gave up and forced a shut down.

Thanks again for your persistence in staying the course on this, much appreciated.

Ok, it claims the program was uninstalled.
Restart this time only took 5 minutes - what is normal anyway?
On restart trying to open Windows Update - first just the outline of the window - then an all white window.
Tried to open WE - would not open - got "The remote procedure call failed and did not execute."
will reboot if necessary and report back.
