  1. Leaving Malwarebytes running w/ all the real-time protections on significantly runs my desktop hotter and louder if I stream and/or game. Streaming is especially bad as more often than not, my PC crashes and shuts down (im assuming over heat). Closing Malwarebytes alleviates this problem. Id like to know just how vulnerable I am with it off, specifically during streaming. Or if I can turn off the most relevant real-time protection options and still be relatively secure. I have no idea what affects what in this regard. I leave windows defender up always. Thanks for your time. Specs: R6 1600 oc @ 3.69 // 16gb 2400 RAM GTX 1080 no OC // 500gb Samsung EVO SSD Streaming: D2 or R6:Siege via Streamlabs OBS @ 720p, 60 FPS.
  2. over the past month, I've noticed my computer overheating a lot, freezing, crashing, and getting the blue screen of death. Could anyone help me find out if I have a virus or not? because im pretty sure I do, my computer overheats so easily. It takes less than an hour to overheat to the point that my computer screen freezes and crashes.
  3. Hi there A few days ago my Synaptics touchpad started to malfunction and my computer was really laggy, for example when hovering over links or things in my toolbar it would not highlight the item for a while til it seemed the pc was ready... My main concern was that the touchpad was not doing what it was supposed to; when scrolling it would not release the scroll bar when I let go of the button, it was not selecting the things I clicked on etc.. After looking at advice online I found a lot of other people seemed to be having the same problem with Synaptics touchpads.. As recommended by others I changed the settings to left-handed which means I can at least browse the net and I can use Photoshop to a certain degree although it is difficult and I've learnt a hell of a lot of new shortcuts since! I think that it is the left button which has stopped working however the touchpad seems to behave strangely, most of the time (it won't let me tap to click even though I selected that option in my touchpad settings etc) Ok so anyway I have been struggling along with the ridiculousness that is my touchpad for about a week now.... Until today, I unplugged my charger and my laptop went dead... Checked the lead connection etc not that.... Now it just says 8% available & charging constantly, it obviously is NOT charging and even after being plugged in for hours still turns off every time I unplug it!?!? My laptop is a HP Pavilion dv6-6b50sa which, after reading about it online, seems to have a heapload of issues and one of the most common ones seems to be overheating.. Do you guys think that might be what the problem is?? It just seems like my machine is falling apart piece by piece!!! :'( I'm sorry for the long rambling post! I really appreciate any help people can offer! I'm a poor & struggling artist & if I lose my laptop I will be devastated (really can't afford another one!!) :'( Terrified right now!
