Well, as stated in the headline, my laptop got a new feature right after I had run the Online Scanner.
I am a "computerwise challenged" person - How do I perform a system restore ?
I did reboot now, and charging is now on-going. While the reboot was being done, there was an update message (Do not turn off....) by Windows on the screen. So possibly that was the culprit...
Sounds like it. Let us know if you have any other problems.
