It is incredible how many Windows related software problems arise out of anti-viral software.

I understand the place that antiviral software has in IT in general, but it used to be such a noble cause– now, it’s all about ad supported software that scaremongers people into subscription renewals, all the while introducing system conflicts.

A lot of this probably has to do with the way Windows itself is engineered. At the end of the day though, I’m more than a bit resentful of third party antiviral that causes system problems when it is supposed to be something keeping it’s mouth shut in the background and just working.
