Tried another program (malwarebytes) and it found and removed quite a few malware from my system that other programs did not even recognize. Which fixed most of my issues except for the slightly annoying "need to refresh" thing. I can live with that as it is just a minor issue.
I do have another question and this is rare to happen type. Every now and then I get a popup saying that the memory is full and I need to close a program (firefox 99% of the time).
I have a logitech g510 keyboard (one with the lcd display) and customized an
applet for it. Had a few programs open normally mem shows 30-40% when I took the screenshot.
When this issue happens my memory is only showing up to 60% usage (which should not trigger it), and have set my pagefile to span multiple drives as to see if that would fix it (it's currently about 24 gigs across 3 drives).
As rare as it happens it just may be a glitch in windows or even firefox, but sucks when you are in the middle of streaming a show and about 1/2 way into it and poof
