I solved my problem yesterday by using the System Restore tool to travel back in time to a point when I didn’t have the catchily-named
Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool for Windows 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2, 2016 x64 Edition – November 2017 (KB890830)
on my laptop.
My laptop didn’t seem to like something about that particular update, but all seems to be running smoothly now. And yes, I realise that I will have to reinstall that update at some point, but at least if things go awry again, I’ll know why it is and I can deal with it a bit more quickly than I did this time around.
All of that meant that I could finally get some photos uploaded from the weekend, and that means that you will be able to see them shortly.
Watch this space.
