After this update to Windows Security Essentials, it takes 8 minutes for my desktop machine to start, instead of 2 minutes. Notified that "Could not connect to a System Event Notification Service". Went back to a restore point of 2 days earlier and got back to normal. However, Thunderbird e-mail client won't work and cannot be restarted. So rebooted and Windows update kicked in again and same problem. Looked at Windows updates and it cannot be uninstalled. Any help, please

Malwarebytes seems to have found the culprit and cleared everything? one found in quick scan and then another found in deep scan. Computer starts ok; now need to do complete backup and then allow windows update to go back on auto...
