Eset Internet Security keeps reporting a "General compiler error" every time it tries to update. It started happening a few weeks ago and I ended up restoring my system from a backup, and I've spent the past couple weeks reinstalling my programs. Which seemed to solve the problem, but now I'm getting the compiler error again.
I obviously can't restore from a backup every two weeks. I googled for help and happened on a couple others reporting similar problems, but no fixes. Here's what I've tried so far:
Tried clearing the cache, didn't help.
Tried reinstalling Internet Security. It helped at first but the compiler error resurfaced some days later.
I think my PC is, despite my herculian precautions, infected with malware. So I tried using System Restore to restore to an earlier state, but it went bad what with the dots in the rollercoaster loop going around and around endlessly for over 24 hours. I eventually shut the thing off, and now can't even boot into Windows (attempting a normal boot just brings up a blank black screen, and attempting to boot into Recovery Mode results in a 0x0000001 error code with some complaint about Windows/System32/winload.exe):
