Help - CIS going wild

I have been running CIS for a few months now and was pleased. But this morning I was greeted with hundreds of Defense+ and Firewall pop-ups asking me to confirm pretty much any process that was running, and quite a few Win 7 warnings that CIS was making changes to my system. I am very alarmed and also annoyed. Is there a diagnostic that I can use to find out what hapenned to CIS, or could this have been triggered by change to DST this night?

All these reactions from CIS could be triggered by an infection. If I were you, I’d made a full scan with my A/V and a double check with Malwebyte.

To rule out malware infection can you please follow the methods I discuss in this post and let me know what you find?
