Ah yes after the first crash I got desperate and downloaded avast as recomended by a friend. I no longer have either on the cpu at this time.

The MSE says it will not download due to windows not being genuine..

But I will try you other solution.

I'm in safe mode looking over my drivers and right as I opened the driver device manager my
"consumer IR Devices" has a yellow hazard sign over it.
I have tried having windows update it for me but it says the best driver is already installed.

Should I uninstall and reinstall?
