Those converted to links!  Interestingly, the Kaspersky URL Advisor gave them the green light.

I don't have them running simultaneously.  The only one I use is Kaspersky.  The others are for one-time scans.  Their real-time protections are turned off.  I am not aware this is a problem and running scans from multiple vendors is supposed to catch things the other doesn't, from what I have understood anyway.  

 

I do the same thing; however, I am fully aware of the potential risks and problems that can happen with more than one anti-virus installed.  Be prepared to remove them for awhile until your thread is solved  :)

Note, on Nov. 2, Kaspersky flashed messages from a website (ShesInTheGlow) that I arrived at while browsing Pinterest and clicking on a user's name in her pin to see their Pin boards.  
 
It said it blocked them.  This is what I see in the log, which says detected but cannot disinfect.
 
I ran Kaspersky Rescue Disk, along with Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Avast, ESET Online Scanner.  All clean. 
 
 
Is it possible it got on my system anyway?

 Well if you scanned your system with the above mentioned tools, your system should be safe.
 

It is the DVD drive.  Yes, I scanned it, took it out and my system seems to be working okay.  The DVD has behaved flakey, imo, in the past, but I have never used them much and the software doesn't make sense to me.  It makes a bit of noise sometimes.

 Just take out the DVD/CD inside the drive and then see the performance :)
 

This is happening most likely because something is constantly loading.

 
 
The DVD?  Or possibly malware related.

I will strongly advise against using multiple antivirus solutions on a system.

I would certainly not advise any nonGeek to have more than one anti-virus program installed.

Different programs can detect different things. I feel safer knowing the consensus is clean. Even that is no guarantee, however, unfortunately.

Could you please be more specific why it is a danger to have other AV software files stored on the system if they are inactivated?

Now I have not been turning off Kaspersky when I run the others periodically. Maybe I could shut down and run them in Safe Mode? Could I store them on a separate disk to run periodically? If not, please advise the danger.

UpinRunnin, don't uninstall/reinstall constantly  :)  No need to move programs off the hard-drive and back on again.

Quietman7 has a very good tutorial on this very topic -- wait til he adds into this thread.  Read at your leisure.

His tutorial will explain much better than I ever could about having more than one anti-virus.

Windows has been updating.  First one took hours.  25,000 operations updated on reboot.

Did anything show up in any of the logs? Adware even?

Does it make sense JRT could not ping or create a restore point?

I don't see any malware or even Adware in the logs.

Regarding the JRT, I have asked the developer about the problem. Will let you know what he says :)

Just got an update from the developer. According to him, he is aware of these crashes and a new version is coming out soon to remedy these problems :)
