I have just installed McAfee Security Scan that came with the recent update of Flash Player, and Ad-Aware(free edition) which has found little to no infections.
I'm not certain what is going on, but I have a feeling there is a virus in my system and would very much like to get rid of it. (Obviously)
I'm not software-savvy, but I can troubleshoot with the best of them. Any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
:EDIT: Alright, so I let Ad-Aware run though, it found one major security issue, and cleaned it out. AVG is still not active, I right-click on the system tray icon for it and the 'update now' and 'Open AVG user interface' are greyed out. I can double-click and open AVG, however it becomes unresponsive and will state that there are 'no active components' through avg. Windows firewall is still active, and, as far as I am aware, it is working.
