I need the help of one of your very kind helpful experts (I have been lurking for over two years in admiration of the help offered to other members in trouble).
I have a 1yr. old PC running Vista Ultimate, with 2GB of RAM, and a dual core CPU.
My security is Comodo firewall, Threatfire, Avast! A/V, with occasional use of various online scanners.
Yesterday morning I had reason to do a system restore to a month earlier. Evrything appeared fine. I installed a few updates (Windows and Security) and rebooted as required by the updates. After a second update cycle and reboot I noticed that each time Vista rebooted the same Windows updates were available and my security programs were asking to be updated also, and my desktop was reverting to a previously changed layout.
I have repeated the updates and reboots a number of times with the same outcome.
Can anyone suggest a possible route to follow to correct this problem, please?
