    OK, this is weird. I am writing this at 10 am. Since 6 pm yesterday, I noticed the yellow shield icon on the bottom right, and when I moved my mouse on it, it said Downloading Updates. At 6 pm last night, it said 0%. When I went to bed at midnight, it said 3%. Whatever it is was slowing my computer down terribly!! This morning, at 10 am, it just moved to 32%!!! In other words, this downloading of updates has now gone on for at least 16 hours.....

    Sure, I know my AVG came on during the night and slowed it down, and my AVG was STILL on at 10 am so I paused it....but WHAT IS BEING DOWNLOADED THAT IS TAKING SO LONG??? How do I find out?? This is NOT normal.
