I am running everything again that I need to, except an anti-virus that is the only proggy I have not put back yet. I haven't decided on which one yet. I ran avast before, but just in case that was my problem, I'd rather try something other then Avast. AVG, Avira or MS Essentials.. we'll see.
MSE - it was probably an AV issue. Whatever you choose, avoid AVG.

I may just not run an AV. I have 5 computers running 24/7, for about 20 years now, and I have never had a virus, and I've never run anti-virus software. I think AV software is largely for newbs and people who refuse to learn internet etiquette. I think malwarebytes and windows defender might be enough for now. Before I installed Avast about 2 months ago, I never used AV software anywhere, I just wanted to try it since it was free and talked about protection in 6 modules blah blah. It didn't slow me down any I don't think, but what if it was responsible for my above mentioned problem. Argh.
