About 2 days ago my computer started acting strange. I believe it was after an update was installed but I do not recall. It has a BSOD episode and I was able to get it working after messing around with the command line with the restore dvd. Yesterday or the day before my computer completely became unresponsive and the windows explorer crashed. I could not open a run window, alt + ctrl + del also did nothing. I had to do a hard reset but it seemed to work after that. Just today when I started my computer microsoft security essentials was disabled and I know for a fact I did not do that. I scanned with MBAM and nothing came up. I am not scanning with MS Security essentials but I doubt it will show anything either. I am suspicious that I somehow have gotten something but I really have no idea how. I know my apartment complex was recently setting up the wifi and I had to call some tech support number and a guy added my computer to the network and I don't know if he could have done something or if maybe the fact that the wifi was unsecured when they first had it up could have done anything but I would really like to have this resolved.
OS: WIndows 7 64 bit
I wanted to make sure it was't the RAM that caused the crash as I was having crashes on arma 3 due to memory issues but memtest completed 4 times with not one fail so I don't think it is related to that.
The primary errors in the application logs is just this error "Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected."
In the system logs there are several errors for Microsoft antimalware rel-time protection and it failing but I don't know what would have caused it.
Sometimes the internet would lose connection yesterday but I don't know if it was the wifi going out or my computer not picking it up.
Please let me know if more information is needed.
Edit 1: I don't know if the link is working but it seems Microsoft Security Essentials keeps getting stopped and that is what the logs say as well.
Edit 2: Google Chrome will also become randomly unresponsive and I cannot open task manager using win key + r.
Edit 3: Microsoft Security Essentials finally finished a scan but just now crashed as soon as I got home. In the system event logs I have 1 warning and 4 errors.
In order this happened:
System Event Logs
Warning:Name resolution for the name vortex-win.data.microsoft.com timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.
Error:Microsoft Antimalware engine has been terminated due to an unexpected error.
