Windows7/avira free edition/mwb free edition, sorry but im not sure if its 32/64bit its my sons laptop and im not very clever with these things ( although he thinks i am ). i believe he`s had this problem for a while but when it started i could not say. When i run a quick scan with avira it takes forever because it sticks at the system32 part although it does get past eventualy. hope this helps.
