It's not a matter of installing "too many" programs.  It's a matter of too many running at same time, or too many running at windows startup.
As for antivirus, I highly recommend Kaspersky Free.
Thanks. I remember seeing the list of all programs on startup where I can disable some. I just don't remember how to get there, I guess I'll Google it.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Try to see in PC1 if there are any TeamViewer drivers installed for Display. The name of the drivers are not TeamViewer but you can see it by the manufacturer.
Thanks I'll check tomorrow.

Just got a desktop and when I connected it to a monitor (I tried two monitors) it comes up something like this



What could that be? Broken wire (I only have one VGA cable) or something more serious?

Most likely. Or broken video port.
