My pc recently developed several glitches:

Click on icons/buttons in web browser and nothing happens

Try to print documents from any application and nothing happens

Basic functions stop working e.g copy, paste etc.

Cannot attach documents to e-mails


Restarting the pc sometimes temporarily relieves these problems but they come back after a few minutes.


I also just started getting a window pop up when using web browser that says 'TypeError: oE is null'


I am running Windows 7 and McAfee Security Center.

I think McAfee is causing the problem.


I would download Avast! Free Antivirus (offline installer ideally, if someone could post a link to that, I couldn't find it and got sick of looking) to a usb thumb drive using another computer. Then fully uninstall all McAfee software. Then install Avast from the thumb drive, and then see if the problems still persist.  That's what I would do. You may want to wait for different advice from someone else, it's up to you.

It is more likely the McAfee Site Advisor add on in your browser. It needs to be disabled.

I will disable the site adviser and see if that works. Thanks.
