After running this program on my computer and restarting, a few strange things happened to my computer:

a ) Whenever I boot up, I get an error message about Generic Host Process having to be shut down because Windows thinks that it is malicious.

b ) Whenever I boot up, my theme changes to Classic and it is locked that way. To solve this, I run some scripts I found on Kellys corner (all 3 of the theme related ones). This fixes my problem, but once I reboot, I have to run the scripts again...

c ) Control Panel is stuck in Category View. The option to change views is gone. I now look at the classic view by 'exploring' control panel, but it'd be nice to have that tab thing to change views back, you know?
