Did it happen to you out of the blue? Or was your machine always slow on startup? Because I've been running norton AV since march with no issues until now. I tried uninstalling norton and reloading it and nothing has changed.

I tried that. Also a no-go. Windows update wants to update something for Microsoft office 2010 which is a free trial version that I downloaded, but for some reason it is not able to complete the update each time. I get an error code 646. I tried to uninstall Microsoft Office 2010 and the computer in unable to do so. Strange, no?

Error code "0x80070646," "646," or "1606" when you try to install Office updates
