how do i disable microsoft security essentials, thinking that may be it because the defenders already off? Thanks for the quick replies by the way

You uninstall from control panel
then go to programs
Then uninstall from there. Make sure you make a system restore first.
Then install avast

For the future, if Defender is off, use an Anti Virus that works well for you, hopefully Avast and download the free Malwarebytes. You will have even better protection, but that is after we get these things fixed.

Going back to Post #1,
A buddy built the system for you, and your screen print shows Windows Activation Status and Product ID Not Available ...
Do you have a valid license, and can you activate it ?
If not, can your buddy activate a license ?
