Playing Medal of Honor single player, and its still occuring.

I keep closing apps, and nothing. Kaspersky isn't the issue, other apps aren't. I don't know what to do.

Anytime I had issues it was ALWAYS Anti-virus. Why I don't use one.

Have you considered using 3 cores instead of 4? Maybe there's a reason why the CPU was marked as a tri core and not a quad core.

Had a client bring their laptop in yesterday, irate because they had just purchased it and a crap ton of accessories (warranty, tech support, AV, etc) and it couldn't get online wirelessly. It'd connect, but wouldn't allow him to browse the web.

Well, I go through the normal routine of making sure the wireless adapter is on, checking their network settings, etc. Everything seemed right.

Disabled KAV, and it worked fine. Uninstalled KAV, still worked. So I re-installed KAV and they were fine.

Yeah, AV can cause a lot of problems some times. Sadly, for the general public, it is a necessary evil.

I don't know why people spend so much money on 3rd party AV when MSE is free...

I opened up the case, looked at the GPU, and noticed a few blown Capacitors. I have a lifetime warranty with XFX, will that cover this? Meaning I can RMA and get a new card? I've had this since like Thanksgiving of 08 or sometime around them.

WOW.

Not sure on the warranty exactly but it should cover it.

Eh, I have MSE but that's it. Before that I didn't use one. Haven't had a virus since I started building my own computers.

Oh my.

If XFX doesn't cover it, this will be a great opportunity for a new card.

I'm actually running Norton 360, but only because I get it free due to my last job. I'll continue to use it untill they no longer let me partake in the program. After that, I'll likely switch to KAV because I get that free through my present job.

Otherwise, I'd just rock MSE myself.
