Ooh, when the computer actually PREVENTS you from doing something, it pisses me off.

Alright, since uninstalling a few things the problem has been mostly resolved. Thank you for the antivirus and other programs suggested. It's been working a lot better. :smile:

Avast and AVG. Of those two Avast caught some spyware that was being undetected by what I was using before.

I heard that Malwarebyte's Antimalware was good too. It hasn't caught anything for me, but I guess that is supposed to be a good thing.

Be careful using two Anti-viruses might slow your computer down more then you want it too :)

A few quick things, first, besides the fact that I HAVE to post more, is web browsers, Firefox is great, but I recommend Flock, and not the new one, I recommend version 2.6.1, it's firefox based, but it's social so you have media bars and all that, plus it's also easier to steal videos from Youtube lol. All the firefox addons work for it too. Secondly, if you accidentally end explorer.exe, just go to the task manager again(it works still when explorer is stopped) and click on new task, then type in "explorer.exe" and bam, you got it back. Hope this helps
