The antivirus also has messed up how some of my programs open. Such as firefox not know how to open when you click it's icon and having to search for something to open it with. I just choose firefox so it opens with firefox and just opens a new tab asking to save the file. It also opens a fake security center showing that Vista Antivirus is my firewall and is disabled, as well as it being my internet security, which is also disabled. Clicking anywhere in the security center brings up a pop up from the antivirus telling me to register. Which I know is bullcrap and which almost begs me to click the register button and all that to see if I can /whois the website it sends this information to.
I'm not really sure how to describe my issues with this other than it mostly being a nuisance and popping up constantly. I've looked at my processes tab in task manager and had narrowed it down to av.exe with the help of google. But after so long it changed it's process name to MSAScui.exe, which supposedly comes with your laptop, even though I did a search and found no such program on my hard drive. Killing this process shuts down Vista Antivirus 2010, but only so long.
My other topic I bring to you is that my physical memory is almost always 40-60% in use. This can take a toll on your laptops processors I'm sure, so I would like to take the processes down a bit so my computer can have that space to use for things other than all these processes, which I have no clue what they do.
Going to provide some pictures, hopefully they can help if my post is lacking in the description department.
Thanks for your help ahead of time.
