    So....this is wierd.

    I recently downloaded and installed a program that was from a shifty site. Ever since I've downlaoded it, pop ups keep popping up and some random installers keep trying to start themselves, I've all but removed those but there's one more thing I just can't figure out.

    Whenever I start a game and begin playing, sometimes when I left click the game flashes, displays "not responding" on the top left of the window and bugs the game out for a split second.

    Let's say I'm walking in Kag, if I click, the game bugs out, "not responding", screen flashes, my player will keep walking until I press whatever key I pressed to walk.

    This goes for any action you can do in kag, it can cause me to stuff up and lose to my opponent and with an Australian tournament just around the corner you can see why I'd like to fix this as soon as possible ;-;

    My guess is there is some file somewhere that was downloaded with this stupid program that is causing the bugs. It happens with any game I open. Not exactly a topic for a gaming thread but I can't be stuffed signing up on another forum just for this one issue.

    Anybody got any ideas? I could really use some help. Unless of course, you don't want me to win that $250 prize with my team :)

    Try running some anti-virus program.

    Try using malwarebytes, I had a very strong virus on my computer, It would try to burn out my cpu, (which mu spu has 8 cores and 16 logical proposers, so it never took more then 20%) Anyway, The virus would not get deleted, No matter what i tryed, Avg and other anti-virus said they removed, yet it was still active.

    so I used Malwarebytes, It removed it, It deleted it, And it saved my computer >.<, When you download it, Open a folder inside of it called Chameleon, It will make your screen go black, And it will have a pop up menu asking you what to do, It helped a lot, The website is this

    https://www.malwarebytes.org/

    (You need to press download, not buy, As download allows you do to scans and cleans up, Buying means it will stop virus from coming on your computer)

    Try using anti-malware, generic anti-virus AND anti-spyware (just keep them running and ALWAYS scan with ALL of them) softwares.
    Find the problem, then search for it on the internet and apply the best solution.

    I used like 3 different anti virus programs that said it cleaned my entire PC but the bug was still active.
    I also defragmented like 4 times, did a clean boot, deleted about 10 unnecessary services/processes AND cleaned my disk drive out for unwanted programs and files.

    Turns out, the problem was a few registry files. These registry files were created when I installed this program and were causing the bug.

    Thank you to those who tried to help me out. Really appreciate it. :)

    Just keep in mind for the future that preventing it by not downloading from shifty sites or using some sort of virtualization software to test it first if you have to will save you a LOT of headaches in the future! Anti-malware/AV software gets better, but so do the hackers and precautions will do a lot better than remedies here.

    If stuff like this happens again, restore points are a great feature from windows (uninstall/rollback any installs made) IIRC one gets made every week by default.

    I can recommend malwarebytes. It's really good.
    And if you really need to download something "shifty", then have a look at http://www.sandboxie.com/ - you can sandbox your browser and later run the downloaded file in sandboxed environment.

    Alternative would be to do shifty downloads in special VM that you just set up only for that purpose - but that's kind of an overkill.

    That said I'm locking the topic.
