    After a long and protracted effort of shutting down restarts and safe modes I have finally uninstalled the offending KB3000850 update.

    I also uninstalled Avast and did a clean (meaning I am on here without protection)....

    Everything seems fine except it has left my Microsoft Office Mail program just hangs.....

    Also when should I re-install Avast? Is there a latest edition without the bug out there now?

    yeah...problem solved by uninstalling Avast and removing an offending update KB3000850 that also had a hand in corrupting pc's.

    Re-loading the latest avast fixed most issues but the corruption left Office and other programs deficient.

Apparently this update KB3000850 is interacting with Avast users and some not Avast users to wreck their systems. Uninstalling it is the key to getting the system back to normal and waiting till they fix the issue...dont download.
