So many problems
This isn't in order because I can't remember the order 1) Webroot had a pop up that covered half my screen saying something about some program. The problem is that it popped up and went away so fast I couldn't read it. I think it said facebook. I don't use facebook. 2) I get pop ups in the lower right corner. They're small and I never get to read them. 3) Apparently something called lodctr.exe keeps trying to install something every time I log in but I was just notified of this a while ago, a good while AFTER logging in. 4) There are no logs of any of this. Why don't you save logs of this crap so I can go and see what happened? 5) I have the program set to not fade messages out and to not force non critical messages into background, yet I do not get to read these messages. Why? 6) Malwarebytes pro now takes forever to start up after logging in. This is after an update caused it to have corrupted files and I had to reload it. 7) I cannot play audio CD's. Media play freezes up when I try. No idea why.

Can you please do a clean reinstall? If you do go Here to download a fresh copy and make sure you have a copy of your Keycode as you will need during the reinstall then please Uninstall Reboot and install and let it finish it's install scan and please report back.
Also going through this whole thread you never did give us the specs and what OS you are using?
Could be can you tell us the specs of your system self built or name and the OS?
I think it's a amd 4170 FX processor (it was the one with the fastest stock clock speed in history)
8 gigs ram amd hd6870 vid card not sure on the motherboard.
It's low to mid end is all that I recall.
Good power supply, it shouldn't be the cause.
It's self built. I wonder about the sound card thing.
I usually don't install the software for the on-board sound processor as I use a DAC. But I did. I wonder if that could cause it. How do I remedy that? Just delete the program? Video card should be up to date. Or not too out of date at least.
And windows 7 64
And a repair shop is just too expensive plus I don't really trust them to fix it properly. I recall hearing someone say they paid $70 just to get their pc dusted out once.
And on that note, could it be dust?
Otherwise I don't think it's a WSA issue causing your problems.
Motherboad updates I'm uncomfortable with as they can really go wrong. This one came with the drivers for my cpu when it came out so I shouldn't need to update the BIOS. But I will do the rest.
My own experience in updating a BIOS is that it is not all that difficult, but you are quite right that if something does go wrong it goes very wrong indeed. I avoid BIOS updates on my own computer unless there is a compelling reason to install them.
When I tried what you said with another CD there was no option to select my default program.
There was only an option to use this program every time, and that was just a check box which didn't really change anything.
1) I moved all the cables around to keep the power cords as far from the sata cables as possible
2) I dusted
3) I updated my vid card and the updater told me it was already up to date
4) I ran the disk and memory diagnostics and both said there were no problems with my hardware
5) I re-installed webroot. This time when looking under system cleaner settings right after install, just like last time I installed it, it gave me a pop up as soon as I tried to click one of the options on the left hand side (I think the option I clicked was "Applications"). The pop up said "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive 😨.". This pop up could not be closed no matter what I clicked on... Continue, Cancel, the X button in the right top corner, right clicking and closing in the task manager and on the bar at the bottom of the screen all failed to close this pop up. The task manager also said webroot had frozen up. This happened just as it did the last time I installed. Don't know why.
Also, the settings windows still flcker every several or 10's or seconds when I'm messint around under the settings button (in hte upper right corner).
Don't know why.
And I still can't play CD's from the "Computer" window.
I'm not sure this is a hardware problem. Maybe it's some sort of program conflict?
Oh, and I couldn't play CD's like that with webroot uninstalled either, so it's not webroot that's freezing up the player.
Well... I am glad it's not Webroot causing the problems! I don't know if anyone else has further ideas that might help, but even with my 15 years experience PC troubleshooting I am about out of ideas that can be done without actually having the computer up on my own workbench 😞
