post #30 - the second screenshot you had with an arrow pointing to it (in Ccleaner).
So, you've rebooted and did Internet Explorer not immediately open this time?
Also, please type Task Scheduler in the search box and open the task scheduler. In the left column click on task scheduler library and post a screenshot.
Very strange because first thing this morning MSN appeared again, also today's emails via Pop Peeper (very reliable for years) behaved a bit strangely and weren't working properly if at all for the first time ever.
So switched off everything for 10 minutes and after an unusually very slow start up no MSN and Pop Peeper back to normal. Wait and see I reckon....
essenbe and simrick will be on later this morning ....hang in their.
Also later today we are all due for a update from MS this afternoon.
The mystery deepens....
