I do NOT have automatic updates set and get to them regularly and do just one at time so I will be able to know if it has messed anything up or not and which one did it.
At the beginning of the week, I did the last one that was the malicious removal tool. Just as it suggested nothing else was running when I elected to install it. HOWEVER, it managed to wipe out a portion of my Internet Security Suite with Verizon. Finally, I had to uninstall and reinstall it. This was accomplished after spending a considerable amount of time with "support" because wouldn't you know it the part that was removed was a vital portion of the uninstaller.
**What is this all about?? a program that we paid good money for has to be constantly "Patched" and then those patches mess up other important things within the computer??
