All games crashing, unable to kill process.
1.My issues are:
Whenever I play a game (currently Kingdoms of Amalur : Reckoning and Bioshock) in about half an hour, the game will freeze and stop responding. If I use task manager to end process, the game will close, however the process name is still displayed in task manager. Also, the nothing on the desktop responds (icons or right click context menu). Process Explorer won't open after this happens but it will work normally otherwise.

Issues encountered:
What is launchy.exe ? I am not in HJT, but I know my way around this stuff. First thing, take launchy.exe out of startup, second, end the process, third, go to your program files and remove it. Unless you know what it is. Another thing, you could be infected via a torrent as you are using utorrent, and make sure to check your startup programs. I just looked it up, its a keystroke thing. Dont worry about that, try re downloading all games not working.

After looking into this, the only thing that is weird about it, is that the anti malware programs have errors throughout most of the logs.
Its an alternative open source application launcher. I installed it of my own free will. Here's the website :
I use Microsoft Security Essentials and MBAM, both of which report no infections. I checked my startup programs and it only has stuff either I put there or was put in by windows/drivers.
HJT is current moved to

Please post your log there.

Redownload all your games, it could be a bug in the game, or just in the hardware itself. Does not mean there is a virus.
