weird OS bugs

So suddenly after a reboot, AV stops working, almost all uninstall data is gone, and system restore doesn't work. Malware scans didn't find anything. Is this some sort of bug?

Antiviruses are junk they do more harm than good and are practically viruses themselves.

In order for us to help you be more specific...

What OS, AV?
What happens when you try to use system restore, what error?
Do you recognize all the programs located in:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\Run
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\Run

And FFS stop downloading porn.

I highly doubt the AVI files off the private tracker I haven't used in a week is the culprit...

OS: 7
AV: MSE

Error: System Restore failed because you left your AV on.
Problem: That's impossible, AV crashes and isn't running

I also found a missing XML file.

I'll check the registry manually...
