My computer is becoming autoimmune! #1
Help!

I just did a Windows refresh, as my AV hates me.

It all started yesterday, when my landlord decided to switch network provider. Having no Internet connection, AVG completely freaked out and decided that my entire Sys32 folder was an entire cocktail of different types of malware, and goes all hostile on it. Being affected by the morning-tiredness any reasonable human being is; I clicked past all its prompts, and evidently clicked "remove threats".
So, all in all I had the structure of my system blown to bits by an exaggeratedly stupid fucking piece of disgusting, repelling software.

Does anyone have any idea on what possibly could have caused this?
Also, I'm now seriously considering switching from AVG to something (read: anything) else. Any suggestions?

EDIT: On further thought, I guess Windows is malware Tongue

That sucks I personally don't use any anti virus / malware. So I wouldn't know :3.

You don't? I don't either on my Linux system, but Windows without AV is like a house without...locks Tongue

It's getting back on track ever so slowly, but I'm mostly disturbed because I had Adobe software for around £500 plus CC...

Don't go with Avast.
I think I saw free premium anti-virus software somewhere on here. If I find it, i'll let you know.
It was nice knowing you all <3

Weird. I've never heard of AVG attacking itself like this. Ever. I've used AVG for multiple years now and it's worked prefectly.

I am surprised anyone uses AVG at all. AVG has been know to do stuff like this a lot. I suggest that you switch to ESET if you have the money (or get it illegaly), as well as getting AVG PC Tune Up, this is the one AVG program that is not very screwy. If you would rather not pay for ESET, as it is pretty pricey, then you should go with Avast!, though it will install Chrome without your permission, so you might want to keep an eye on it while it is installing.
Please do not hate me. I am an insane sadist, I hate humans by default, but I try to be nice. I am new to computers and programming.

Why do you people hate me when all I do is try to help? Just because you do not understand me does not mean you should hate me.

Well, yeah, but I like the interface...
Hmm, I'll definitely check it out, thanks ^^

I've tried Avast!, and it wasn't that bad. I'll compare the two for now ^^ Thank you!
