Computer Restarting Every Few Hours

Windows RT 8.1

Since the last automatic MS update last week to my PC, the computer restarts, on it's own, every few hours. While I work on it, it doesn't seem to do a restart. But when I don't work on it for awhile, and come back, there's the opening screen showing it has restarted again. Tis is the second time this has happened. The last time, a few months ago, not sure if coincided with MS update, but it started RESTARTING and I deleted the app program Sticky Notes which I thought might have been the cause. This time I cannot get Sticky Notes deleted. What is causing this? The update? I cannot afford a tech to come and look. Have had W10 for about a year now which incidentally downloaded itself without my permission. I have two virus apps on that I keep current. MS Office 2010.

Microsoft Edge

Windows RT 8.1

While browsing for weather info I got on a bad site, apparently, and it would not let me exit. I had to go to task manager to terminate Edge. I have Edge set to return to previous location when I log on. Now when I log on it goes right back to the bad site and I have to terminate using task manager. Edge is no use to me unless I can reset somehow. Can anybody help? Thanks, David

Taskbar appears during Cyberlink PowerDVD full screen playback

Windows RT 8.1

Whenever a play a video file from my hard drive with Cyberlink PowerDVD 12 it launches in fullscreen fine, but after a couple of seconds the taskbar appears over the video. I then have to click into the program to bring the video to the foreground. It makes no difference whether I have Always on Top enabled within PowerDVD itself or have the Auto Hide the taskbar enabled or disabled. No other programs seem to have this problem. The catch all solution would be to find a way to hide the slither of the taskbar that appears when auto hide the taskbar is enabled. I found a program that would do this but wouldn't hide the start button, so it wasn't really all that useful. Alternatively I would like to at least get PowerDVD 12 to stop doing this as it is the only program I'm really having issues with. Please would anyone be able to advise?

Annoying flickering screen in Windows 10

Windows RT 8.1

Ok, I give up!. I have tried everything, my task manager doesn't flicker the screen. This happens when ever it feels like it. I never had this problem in windows 8. So as you can see there has been a lot of questions about this issue. I haven't found the right answer yet. 1. Why is this happening? And why haven't Windows 10 or Microsoft fixed this problem! I'll be in the middle of something, and all of a sudden the screen goes from normal to large then to the point that I can't even see the screen anymore because it is so large. I am totally irate about this!. I want something to be done.! I have had to put up with this problem since I downloaded Windows 10 last year!. I am not a stupid when it comes to computers. Somebody out there HELP ME with this problem!!!!!!

Microsoft Ergonomic 4000 keyboard remote session

Windows RT 8.1

If I use the keys above the numeric keypad locally on my PC the keys work fine. Those keys are an equal sign, a left parenthesis, a right parenthesis and a back space. Once I remote onto another PC that is not in the office those keys no longer function as they should. The equal sign and back space work fine. However, the left parenthesis types a number 9 and the right parenthesis types in a number 0. Any idea on why that is happening? They used to work fine a few months back but now no longer work as they should. Only way I can get the parenthesis to work is if I use the shift key. And if that's the case then I may as well just use the number 9 and zero on the regular keyboard. The two parenthesis keys are useless above the numeric keypad if I have to go about it that route. I'm currently running the current version of Windows 10.

Cannot install Security Update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 8.1 for x64-based Systems (KB3214628)

Windows RT 8.1

I have tried many times since 1/10/2017 to install this security update without success always getting a error code (80070003) about which I can find no information. I have run troubleshooting for Windows Update and a fix is applied which does not solve the problem. Are others having this problem? Can anyone provide a solution?
