I was not using the beta. I am using version 2.55.0
So sorry I forgot to include this initially.
I ended up unistalling EVERYTHING. I was so sick of the errors popping up all the time. For days.
I deleted my CHS folders, so I really am starting from scratch, I guess. But that is fine. I do not think it was my security software. It never had caused a problem previously and I had it whitelisted.
Things as of now are fine.
God bless you.
