The user received a message that a lot of the Host Processes for Windows Services, specifically Windows Update Installation, had problems.  I've attached a screen shot.

They had experiences performance problems after installing the Grammarly extension for Office 2010 and Word.  In the process of installing Grammarly they ran a Malwarebytes scan which found Potentially Unwanted Programs.

Is this problem temporary?  Would a restart reset it?
