it is the data definition file that tells you av program what is a virus and what is not...i don't get the hardware notice on a software update...sounds odd.

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.[/code]
