...Megalo Effects...

 

There's your problem right there.

 

ONLY download effects from this web site.

The Megalo Effects pack is an unauthorized compilation of several plugin packs on this forum. There's a good chance some of the plugins in it are outdated and won't work with the latest version of paint.net.

If you want the most recent version of the light rays plugin, it's a part of Madjik's plugin pack

Is this update to date with those plugins?

That plugin pack was last updated in January 2012, but that is still very recent. It was most likely updated to be compatible with Paint.NET 3.5 (current version).

 

Just do what the guys before me said. Delete all of the plugins you downloaded from that other site and start getting your plugins from here.

You should also run a full antivirus scan.  There's no telling what that plugin pack had lurking in it.

I've already done many scans. Avast 2014, Hitmanpro and malwarebytes

I mean after you uninstall the offending software package.

Hmm... Avast never detected anything in the paint.net directory but it detected the megalo effects setup as a virus. Evogen to be exact.

That makes sense.  They probably wouldn't go to the effort of infecting the actual effects when you're using their installer and infecting your machine anyway.

 

I'd still recommend dumping them and using the official versions from this forum.

Thanks for posting this.  Other users need to be warned.  You can see now why we take such a dim view of that website and plugin pack.

Already removed all of it :)
