Default hey

Yeah i've expirienced the problem but I don't remember how it worked again. It started working on it's own. My guess is you have a virus on your computer that targets antivirus software. If anything you try doesnt work (antiviral programs) then format it. But try ever other possiblity first. You don't want to format your computer a lot. It's not good for it.

Lol formatting doesn't hurt your computer where did you hear that. It does it more good than harm it clears all the crap that accumilates.

Hello


Sounds like you have a virus. Maybe you should download and run Stinger.
