After installing avg anti virus free, when I click the internet explorer icon, nothing happens. I am using Windows 10 on this pc. The other devices in the home work just fine. Please help.
For the past few months I've been getting these firewall popup requests from different PID that don't exist. The firewall request doesn't have a path, description or signature as apposed to the regular firewall request. I tried finding the PID number with the tasklist command but they just don't exist. I've tried auditing every process when these popups keep happening (they sometimes popup ten in a row, one after the other) then checking in the event log - and still, nothing. Recently I had a few popup after I allowed Microsoft's backgroundtaskhost.exe but I don't think it's connected.
I spoke to a few AVG tech support people and they were stumped, one said to allow them (I didn't) and the other said to uninstall and reinstall AVG. Not only did I do that, I reformatted for good measure and it's still happening. I was asked to reference this # 11157133 post.
I have AVG Ultimate, Malwarebytes, Steam, nVidia Experience, a few games and a bunch of Windows apps (btw they also don't have a signature - but that's a different problem). I use Google Chrome with AdBlock and Poper Blocker. I don't have any filesharing software and I don't think I've been on any sketchy sites.
Here's a link to Google Drive with photos of the popups in question.
Thanks and have a good day.
