I use Avast AV and a download arrived and was installed. I rebooted as instructed. I couldn't get Thunderbird to connect to the mail server. A-squared anti-malware cannot update and I get a socket error trying to update Spybot S&D. I can't update Avast either. I did a restore to the day before the update. I ran Avast and it found a smitfraud.exe file which I quarantined. All the issues still remained. Not sure what to do next, any advice is appreciated
