I have my update set to download but choose what and when to update.

 

Since the update my laptop has gone nuts.

 

It first started not allowing me to get on internet, then its now allowing me. A message appeared "execution faled" or something like that.

 

My Avast has disappeared like a whipped dog.....cant get into "uninstall programs" to see if its there?

 

Control panel is off the planet and takes ages to load, then wont load diagnostic files - just shuts down.

 

System restore said it could not do the action required when I restored it to the point before the updates......

 

Am scared to touch anything as I have internet access but dont know if I am protected.......

Thanks if you know what this is????

When I went to get back onto the internet through Chrome it said "execution failed" - couldnt access anything net related.

 

Also couldnt get into anything on Control panel - still freezing...why did the scan set my pc back?

 

Then I right clicked on Chrome and ran as administrator and it worked - here I am.

 

I got this when i followed the string on that scan and got to here:

I would like us to do this                                *Join Live chat http://www.geekstogo.com/help/

To view the details that included in the CBS.Log file, you can copy the information to the Sfcdetails.txt file by using the Findstr command, and then view the details in the Sfcdetails.txt. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open an elevated command prompt as described in the previous step 1.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
    Note The Sfcdetails.txt file contains details from every time that the System File Checker tool has been run on the computer. The file includes information about files that were not repaired by the System File Checker tool. Verify the date and time entries to determine the problem files that were found the last time that you ran the System File Checker tool.
  3. Open the Sfcdetails.txt file from your desktop.
  4. The Sfcdetails.txt file uses the following format:
    Date/Time SFC detail
    The following sample log file contains an entry for a file that could not be repaired:
    2007-01-12 12:10:42, Info CSI 00000008 [SR] Cannot
    repair member file [l:34{17}]"Accessibility.dll" of Accessibility, Version =
    6.0.6000.16386, pA = PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_MSIL (8), Culture neutral,
    VersionScope neutral, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:b03f5f7f11d50a3a}, Type
    neutral, TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral in the store, file is missing

PM or paste Log info.

Update:

Managed to do a system restore back to this morning when my problems began when I downloaded a number of Windows updates for 8.1

Now things run a bit better but the Control panel programs dont operate well or dont operate at all...very slow or just wont open.

Especially is this so under System Security, the window freezes and I have to wait till it unfreezes but still no programs accessible.
 
PS - system restore now has nothing to restore to? I thought that W8 creates automatic restore points back in time?

I know you don't want to but if I were in your place, I would backup my data then do a Clean install of Windows 8.1 (not 8.0).

 

To get a Windows 8.1 ISO to reinstall with, see here: Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

The updated Option One shows you how to use a Microsoft provided tool (mediacreationtool.exe) to download any version of 8.1 for either 32 or 64 bit, regardless of what computer (bit wise) you are running from.

Must be run from a Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 computer.

 

The 8.1 you download will active using the key embedded in UEFI BIOS.

 

I've used this tool and then installed and it works great.
