hey and welcome to the forum.

are you using avast internet security? if so try a repiar of avast and see if that could help.

start-control panel- add/remove programs.

from there scroll down to avast, hit the uninstall button. then a screen should popup there you choice the option repair.

did it solve your problem?

if not try a clean installation from scratch.
Windows 8.1 amd a10-5700 64 bit
