My first inquiry is about my AntiVirus software. I use Kaspersky, it came with my laptop. I also use MVS 2010 Express for my C++ class.
Sometimes Kaspersky blocks my ability to compile and run my code, other times it allows it. I have tried including it in the trusted applications and exclusions, but neither has worked. I will be willing to switch my AntiVirus software as long as the alternative is free.
My second question is about the language itself. What, if anything, is C++ good for outside of the classroom? Also, what texts and/or sources(like this site) would help me more with the theory and psuedo behind programming?
