Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My PC stopped responding at a normal speed after automatic update was installed

\015 I received a pop to say that an automatic update would be installed in 4 minutes - there was no opt-out option, only a "remind me in 10 minutes" option, I postponed the updates 3 or 4 times, but was not at the pc when the last update popup started the process and proceeded to restart the PC. My PC has not worked properly since. I can sometimes get onto the internet will limited problems, but all normal PC programs either freeze while trying to open or provide me with an error report. Can you suggest anything to help with this rather than resetting my entire PC?\015\012\015\012Thanks \015\012Angie\015
