yes you're right, but i don't know an antivirus that removes or detects every existing virus, so it is posible to have a virus and not even know it. but i disabled it mostly because of the resources it uses. I want my computer to run smooth even if that means a little bit less secured. I'm not that afraid of reinstalling windows and everything i have on this computer is recoverable.

i remember once on windows xp, i just installed it, it was running really fast and i just thought why not do all the updates. i gotta tell you it's not the best of ideas. i made my computer start a minute, a minute and a half slower. it was secured but it was running really bad, i didn't like it at all. I really think that enabling system restore and doing all the updates should be done if you have some sort of very important stuff. And trust me i don't.

about system restore: i turned it off because there's where viruses like to hide and it usually slows my system.
1. What is that Sorting Tab on your settings?
Can you give screenshot?

2. Try clicking "reset" (I think it was obvious and you already did?)

3. Is it the same with large icons?

no, with large icons it does show it, but the taskbar becomes bigger(as big as it would be with small icons and 3 rows).
i did click reset, now and before posting here.
here's the sorting tab, it has nothing to do with this.

virus can hide in system restore. that's why before you run any virus scan, it's recommended you turn off system restore.
