I had two anti-virus programs installed and my friend recommended that I remove one of them. I had Norton 360 and McAfee. So, I removed McAfee and my computer started behaving weirdly. I couldn't access specific folders, especially the windows file folder, it kept on crashing.
Google Chrome, iTunes and Adobe Reader all stopped working. They won't even open. I just installed Firefox and Foxit for time being, but that doesn't solve the problem.
I showed the laptop to a technician and he said that my hard drive might be corrupted. But it's been only 8 months or so. I didn't start experiencing these problems until I un-installed one of the anti-virus programs.
Can my hard drive be failing or is the problems I am facing due to the un-installation of the anti-virus?
