I have noticed that when I started the computer in the morning, one or more icons were missing. Vital was the AntiVirus and Firewall icon. In fact, without the Firewall icon (sygate), I could not start anything. This morning there was only the Safely Remove Hardware.
Apaarently, the Antivirus (AVG8.01) had gotten (or checked) its update, and started the scan, but I had no way to know with no icon in the taskbar, and an inactive shortcut. But, I knew nothing about the system,. Using the start|turn of the computer, I was getting no response clicking on restart or shutdown. Only turning off the computer , and then restarting gave results. This time all icons were present in the taskbar. I can function, but not so well, with AV and helpsvc.exe sucking up all my resources (100% CPU).
Any bright idea?
