Windows 7: Right-click menu bar

I mean, I don't "use" them, per se, but I feel more comfortable having many security aspects. And the problem seems to only be the right click menu when clicking on icons (no big deal, really) and sometimes interfering with some torrent downloads, which I can just keep restarting the torrent and it'll continue til I gotta do it again (sometimes every few minutes, sometimes once or twice til the torrent finishes downloading, and most of the time, not at all). I read some people criticizing MSE's lightness and saying it might not be as strong as paid for suites like AVG 9.

If you download junk from torrents you need all the protection you get, although MSE is a solid choice. G-Data has very high rates of detection with 2 anti-malware engines, although it is apparently heavier on resources.

Yeah, it's weird. It only messes with very few torrents out of all the ones I download. But if there's no easy quick fix to it - other than adding the folder I store my downloads (desktop lol - then transfer them other places manually) to the exception list (which would disable it's detection on all torrent downloads, ergo: not good) - then it's no big deal.

Run on sentence.

You should manually scan torrent files after downloading anyway.

Yeah, that's true. I've grown trusting of them since I mostly use Demonoid. By the way, I know talking about torrents and stuff is probably against the site rules, so I won't say anything I'd think is ban-able, like: suggesting/linking/advocating/etc.

Do whatever you want - just make sure you are aware of the consequences. You should also read the comments. I'm not surprised at the level of piracy - do you have any idea how difficult it is to get Manhunt 2 uncut AO on PC? Even directdrive has limited the download to Canada, Mexico, and the US.

Yeah, I always read the comments. I'll just say it was for Microsoft Office 2007 Enterprise - and it was legit. If a mod sees this and thinks that's saying too much, please edit that out of my post instead of deleting/banning me. Thanks.

Maybe you could try to remove AVG from Context Menu and see whether that works
Use ShellExView sort by Company name and disable AVG alone then see whether your getting Normal Context menu

Hope this helps

I'm leaning towards AVG - what also runs at startup and have you installed or used any tweaking tools/cleanup tools?

I want it in the context menu though! I like it since I can just right click on something and scan it with AVG directly if I want to.

Not many things. Basic things like AIM, utorrent, AVG, and maybe some other random stuff I'm forgetting like Java update or something. I can't really check at the moment since I've been stricken with a worse problem just today: https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tml#post485595
