For the past week I noticed my computer cutting off randomly and suddenly, and sometimes it would say it was trying to update itself where I would loose full control. This was happening two or three times a day. Then the day before yesterday after the update thing that was happening "frequently"the problems stopped. However I noticed Ghostery “a malware/tracker blocker” was disabled for some reason and I can’t figure out how to get it re-enabled. “See Attachment”.
Today I noticed a bunch of error messages in my sketch when i try to load it. The sketch was working perfectly before the update, and i’ve never seen these kinds of error messages before. I tried a few previous loaded sketches and noticed the same issue.
Binary sketch size: 104,218 bytes (of a 258,048 byte maximum) Exception in thread "Thread-598" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Could not initialize class gnu.io.RXTXPort at gnu.io.RXTXCommDriver.getCommPort(RXTXCommDriver.java:808) at gnu.io.CommPortIdentifier.open(CommPortIdentifier.java:343) at processing.app.Serial.<init>(Serial.java:160) at processing.app.Serial.<init>(Serial.java:77) at processing.app.debug.Uploader.flushSerialBuffer(Uploader.java:77) at processing.app.debug.AvrdudeUploader.uploadViaBootloader(AvrdudeUploader.java:175) at processing.app.debug.AvrdudeUploader.uploadUsingPreferences(AvrdudeUploader.java:67) at processing.app.Sketch.upload(Sketch.java:1666) at processing.app.Sketch.exportApplet(Sketch.java:1622) at processing.app.Sketch.exportApplet(Sketch.java:1594) at processing.app.Editor$DefaultExportHandler.run(Editor.java:2382) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:619)
Could this be a virus or has anyone seen these error messages before?
