does windows 8.1 go awry after a few months usage? clockwatch error

  SANAP 22:55 11 Feb 2015

I got a new PC last July and all was great until 24 hours ago, I got chrome crashing ie not responing, IE 11 freezing, my mcafee security would appear to be running but could not access the settings. I then tried a reboot worked for a few minutes and then problem repeated. I then tried to sign out of my account and got a message MCAFEE vulnerability scanner was running please wait but I have that facility switched off. I assumed that was the problem and contacted Mcafee support and they were so bad I deleted Mcafee today and got kasperspy but tonight when priinting a document I got a BSOD and the message " clock watch .. timeout"

I did a quick search but no luck.

SANAP, how did you get on with the missing-emails problem I helped you with last month?
