My laptop started lagging and freezing 2 days earlier so I downloaded Avast antivirus and did a deep reboot scan sorta thing where it said that a few files were corrupted. After the laptop booted, I initiated a virus scan. A notification alert from Avast said that the laptop needed restarting asap. I restarted it but then the laptop started showing an error message “Your PC has trouble starting.” After that, it went into automatic system repair and after some prodding around in restore options given in the error message menu, it initiated a system restore from the most recent Windows 10 update which was on 25th October 2019. It still restoring but I’m really worried and I’m not good at troubleshooting software and virus problems. Is this something I should worry about? The laptop is just around 3 yrs old. I didn’t let the virus scan complete, as I thought that the restart was crucial, so I don’t even know for sure whether there is any virus on it.
P.S I connected a memory card with a fatal hardware error to the laptop just before these problems started. I tried to open and move a few files from the memory card but that’s it. I guess the corrupted files which the reboot scan was telling me about must have been those few files I tried to move from the memory card.
Plz let me know your opinion
UPDATE; The PC restored properly but Google Chrome isn't opening now idk why and Avast was deleted automatically after restoration.
