Hope there are still some Surface2 (RT) Win8 users around, as I still use mine almost daily besides my S3.
The tablet ran the latest 04-2018 security update yesterday, but it messed up all my installed apps. Almost all of them refused to start and got stuck on the start/icon screen.
It doesn't really matters if it's MS native apps or 3rd party ones.
After some fiddling I got some of them to start again, by starting/closing them frequently, but are dog slow atm.
While this was all happening, CPU and harddrive usage was over 60-70%%, as if Windows was still doing stuff. Even after multiple reboots/shutdowns.
Also, the apps that refuse to start (for now) are apps that are not in the Store anymore. Coincidence?
Does this sound familiar to someone, or did I just got a bad update experience?
I am trying to mend my parents in law's computer. It's a Lenovo with Windows 8. The computer is extremely slow - loading up the computer you need at least two attempts - the first attempt you get a blue screen. Using the PC I've encountered that the computer is extremely slow - mouse stops when you are moving it etc...
I've run a disk cleanup and then also a virus run. These did not make a big difference.
Does anyone have any further ideas on how to remedy this problem? Would prefer not to reboot the entire machine as I have lost the Office 2010 code.

Windows Update essentially just says "checking for updates" forever even overnight and never finds any. While doing so the Windows Update Service is constantly eating 15-20% of my cpu resources.
I am concerned I will no longer get updates as a result of this
Things I have tried
1. Malware / AV Scan (nothing found)
2. Using Microsoft's Windows Update Troubleshooter
3. Using System Restore to a time it last worked
4. Re-installing the Windows Update Client
5. Re-registering the DLL files for the BITS service
6. Clearing out the Windows Update cache
none of these solutions seem to have helped, can anyone think of anything else that might work?
