    I could be wrong but it looks like you're running two antivirus applications. Uninstall one.

    Look at this sticky.

    Out of sheer curiosity what the hell is this then?

    D:\Program Files\Common Files\Authentium\AntiVirus\dvpapi.exe

    If you dont know what it was then I would definitely go through all the steps in the sticky that Zenosincks mentioned.

    Oops... too early in the morning for me... need coffee...

    dvpapi.exe is a process belonging to Authentium Antivirus.

    Recall installing it? look in your Add/Remove Programs

    We've gathered that much and he said that he didn't even know what it was so I'm assuming he doesn't remember installing it.
