    Yah you probably had Overkill.

    I know people who use Avira and and the full version of Avast is OK, but never ever ever never install both at once.

    Its come down to use 1 AV and 1 Malware, and Malwarebytes is the most used Malware detection. But anything more than that is too much.

Sometimes you can't get rid of that "numbered" user.

    Did you use an Admin Command Prompt?

    someone please help, I can't get online due to my wifi having limited access......I work from home so this killing me

    Check your new post, An adapter problem has no bearing on elevated command prompts. It's your ROUTER. Unplug it for 10 seconds, then plug it back in.

    Make sure you are using IPv4, check that in adapter Settings.

    Haha yeah, Ive learned my lesson, only 1 anti-virus from now on!

    And to confirm for everyone else having the same issue, its probably your anti-virus programs. Just delete it or remove from Program and Features, restart your comp and thats it! You can reinstall the anti-virus after that but like the guys have said above, ONLY INSTALL ONE!

    Again, thanks a lot guys. I wouldn't even know where to begin if it weren't for you guys. :0
