Am running windows 7 and am using Firefox I have Microsoft Security Essentials,SuperAntiVirus.Malewarebytes,Ad-Ware, and Panda Anti-Virus.I've scanned a number of times and still little to nothing is found.And as am typing this up I swear if am typing up a sentense of 7 words when I get to the second to the last third letter only 3 or 4 letters show up.My screen buffers alot and does this flickering like a TV screen when it does this...Its been frustrating me for weeks.My computer runs faster when I do a Full System reboot.Is it possible no matter how much I clean my computer are there viruses that cant be found with antivirus? Is there anything I could do to secure my computer from infection or completely clean it without going through the trouble of a Full System reboot?

Any known conflicts?

We had to "pop the hood" so to speak in a recent discussion and found software conflicts. You can tell more and read what we found at Overclocking advice.

For now, for today there is no way to secure a Windows PC that does not involve making the PC almost unusable. And folk that have tried often have created a mess.

to try.

Remove all but one anti-virus. They can all conflict with each other and slow a computer down to a crawl.

I see Microsoft Security Essentials, SuperAntivirus, (not heard of that one), and Panda anti-Virus. Choose one, but not that SuperAntivirus if that is the correct name, and uninstall all the others.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
