Computer has been working like a champ for over 2 years. I keep it clean with Windows 8 and Malwarebytes and really only use it for games here and there, internet browsing, torrents and "Netflix and chilling". I recently installed an old game called Escape Velocity: Nova. Old 32 bit game from back in the Macintosh days. I also installed Heroes of the Storm.
Today I came home and Chrome has stopped working. It's still showing installed on my computer and the icon is still there on the taskbar but when I try to load it, nothing happens. I ran Malwarebytes to see if some malware was downloaded by mistake but nothing. So then I tried using IE to download antivirus programs and malware cleaners from this forum but now when I try to save any file to the downloads folder I get an error message. I have attached a screen shot ( Screenshot1.png 363.54KB 1 downloads). I have been downloading torrents for years and always have taken proper steps to keep from downloading malicious viruses but sometimes things slip through so I'm hoping this is something simple and a quick fix. Now when I try to delete anything from my downloads folder I am getting the same error message. Also, I was able to save the first screen shot to my desktop but now I cannot save any other files anywhere on my computer. It is giving me the error message: File corrupted or unreadable.
I'm assuming I will have to post somewhere else about Google Chrome but this is what started and as I was trying to fix it I came across the problem above.
