I'm new here, and it's great to meet all of you. I know it's kind of awkward to just go right ahead with the serious stuff, but this problem has been bugging me for quite some time already.
I hope you all understand.
I've recently upgraded to Malwarebytes Pro and that's when things started to go insane. I was currently using Avast during that time, and I noticed that my system became really slow especially during start-up. It actually took like three minutes for me to logon to my user account, when it only took around 5 seconds before I upgraded my Malwarebytes.
Anyway, I did some research and they said Avira would be more compatible with Malwarebytes Pro, so I downloaded it and deleted Avast. There was also an instruction that showed how to get rid of the nag screen that comes out everytime you open Avira. My mistake was I followed it. Here are the steps I did:
1. I opened my computer to safe boot and went to the administrator account (my account was different, though), which, in hindsight, was the second mistake I think I made
2. I went to Control Panel, clicked on C:, went to programs and the Avira folder, then disabled notify.exe
3. I shut down and turned on my computer again.
After that, I noticed that it still took an eternity for my computer to start. Sometimes, programs would open really slow, and websites would hang in the middle of their operation. What's really worse is that the desktop folder kept opening every time I start my computer. Sometimes, UTorrent would also open as well. It's ironic that after painstakingly avoiding one popup, I now have two of them. It's really frustrating.
Anyway, I've switched to AVG and followed the steps Malwarebytes gave about system freezing (http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=10138&st=0&p=181018&#entry181018). It worked well. However, I'm left with more problems than I imagined, I'm afraid.
Anyone have an idea on how to resolve this problem?
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?
