AntiVirus? What is that? If you want my opinion, viruses are made by antivirus companies to create an artificial need for their software. The best antivirus is the user of the pc.lol Don't click on every web banner, don't install from sources you don't know, and don't download porn. So no antivirus.
I don't really have any outstanding software installed, a couple games, just normal day to day stuff...minus 7z. It wouldn't be hard to just start from scratch, but then that would defeat the purpose of problem solving, that's just problem avoiding. The thing is, it worked fine the first 2 days, I didn't install anything, then it just started. I think this is a good problem for everyone to figure out, because it happens on EVERY damn operating system Microsoft created. There must be a solution!
