The printer is shown to be installed (multiple times) but it is offline, the multiple entries need to be gotten rid of so that you can start afresh, you need to disable the firewall when you do this so as to avoid conflicts.

 

Speccy shows that no Microsoft updates have been installed since the OS was installed and this is a concern.

 

Can I ask for how long you have been using Norton AV for, this really should also be gotten rid of and a less problematic and resource hungry alternative such as Avast or MSE installed, both are very good and available free.

I had the Norton AV since I bought the computer, two years.  The AV is from Comcast, and has been installed and uninstalled a couple of times.  If I need to get rid of Norton, I have no problem with that.  Let me know which one of the two you would recommend I use.  What AV do you use?

Please provide the requested WVCheck information.

 

I used Avast free for many years but not now, each of my computers run on Windows 8.1 which has an upgraded version of Defender that offers the same real time protection as MSE, this makes having a third party AV unnecessary, in addition to this I run a manual MBAM scan once a week.

No problems with the OS other than it needs to be updated asap as it is vulnerable to malware attack due to the many missing security updates.

 

Have you managed to remove the many HP printer installations.

I uninstalled Norton using the Norton Uninstall feature and now I am unable to install Avast or MSE.  I tried to do a restore, but I was unsuccessful. 

 

 

Not since I last install it.

What happens when you try and install Avast or MSE, the HP software we can come back to once you have AV protection and Windows is fully updated.

Apologies for the delay  :(

 

Can you post an updated Speccy url for us please.

 

Can I also ask that you temporarily enable Windows Defender first.

You still have Symantec/Norton software on your computer, from your Speccy report C:\Program Files (x86)\Symantec\VIP Access Client\

Try running the Norton removal tool again to see if that gets rid of it, once it has been run again take a look in the Control panel/uninstall a program.

 

Now that Defender is running can you try and get Windows fully updated, if for some reason you cannot get Windows to update I think it best that you get the computer checked for malware.

There are no identifying programs from Norton that are visible.  Also, nothings visible in the way of a file folder that I can see that would allow me to delete it using the "programs and features".

 

I'm unable to install updates.
