Since I've updated to Windows 10 I've been experiencing some odd issues. First, I upgraded CPU, MB, Memory & Graphics Card 2 weeks prior to the Windows 10 upgrade. I "kicked the tires" for those 2 weeks with no issues. I did have Malwarebytes, ESET and Advanced System Care installed on that Windows 7 Home Premium OS box. ONLY ESET real-time AV process was running and Window's Defender was turned off. System was stable and speedy.
Post Windows 10 upgrade I noticed the following:
- Windows Defender - every option is ON and all the settings are grayed out and I cannot change them. When attempt to enable in CMD Admin I get "windows cannot verify the digital signature for this file. a recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be a malicious software from an unknown source.". Also, when I boot into Windows I get a dialog box telling me that WD application is missing. Think this is due to the signature, but...
- ESET - was not running and I cannot remove it completely.
- Revo Uninstaller Pro - will not allow me to re-activate using the valid registration code.
- NVIDIA - Will not install drivers as there are some remnant files and registry entries that cannot be removed.
I've tried uninstalling all of the above, with the exception of WD of course, in Safe Mode but I get a Windows Installer error (don't recall the details, sorry).
I'm looking for a big brain that can offer some direction on where I can go from here in my pursuit of a resolution.
Thanks in advance!
