    Programs not working 5th Sep 17 at 9:43 PM
    Every since recently downloading a dodgey microsoft update my OH's laptop is slowly shutting down.
    First the printer stopped working then word and excel stopped now vidoeos and iplayer won't work.
    She can not also download things from kindle.
    We have done several virus scans and no threats.
    Any ideas what to do anyone?
