There are a few things at play here.


Symantec Will pop up with a list of results continuing on for hundreds of lines

Adaware Anti Virus will find hundreds of threats when scan is ran, cleaned/removed, then run program again and it still finds hundreds



My Hard drive is rapidly filling up. When a Symantec search is performed it says files are located in quarentine but originated in TEMP folder, when I first checked there were about 200 folders, I deleted them and within 1 hour I had another 100.


I have Symantec, Sbybot SD, Malewarebytes, Adaware Antivirus, Advanced System Care, IObit Maleware. I use these all randomly to check for diff things


Running windows 7(had a legit copy) However when I went to do the Free upgrade to windows 10 it came back as counterfiet..  this worried me
