Looking at things running on your computer, I suspect, you may have some issues with Panda.
I suggest, you disconnect from the net, uninstall Panda, turn Windows firewall on, reconnect to the net, restart computer, and see how things are.

Im guessing it likes that because I disabled it?

Do I just re-enable it to make it work?

No, you don't disable it. You have to uninstall it through Add\Remove.

Now, wait...
1. That Panda message was just a generic message, just in case, you had some files in the vault.
2. I didn't ask you to install another AV, yet. I wanted to see, if after uninstalling Panda, your system is back to normal. Is it?
3. One of the reasons, I don't recommend AVG is what just happened to you. Pretty common AVG error.
4. If your computer works fine after uninstalling Panda, here are your choices:

- Avast! free antivirus: http://www.avast.com...avast-home.html
- Avira free antivirus: http://www.free-av.c...load/index.html

- free PC Tools Firewall Plus: http://www.pctools.com/firewall/

- free Comodo Internet Security (firewall + AV): http://www.personalf...all.comodo.com/

If you decide to install Avast, or Avira, make sure, Windows firewall is turned on, or use PC Tools Firewall Plus.
If you decide to install Comodo, make sure, Windows firewall is turned off.

IMPORTANT! Make sure, you use only ONE antivirus, and ONE firewall.

That's why. I experienced very same problem myself, and that was the reason, I stopped using AVG.

What security programs do you have now installed.
I'm asking to make sure of this:

IMPORTANT! Make sure, you use only ONE antivirus, and ONE firewall.
