git fails to perform any task

I am using Git on Windows 7 that I had downloaded from http://git-scm.com/download. No matter how many times I reinstall Git and try to do something (even clone doesn’t work) it fails to perform any task at all. It always throws the same error:

fatal: Full write to remote helper failed: Invalid argument

I am at my wit’s end to figure out what the hell does this even mean. No web search has revealed any definite solution to this mess. I have come across several errors on the net but this error hasn’t seem to surface on anybody’s system till now. Please help as I am a newbie.

    In my case it was COMODO Antivirus that was silently blocking execution of git scripts. Add entire git installation folder to antivirus software exceptions list and it should start working.

    Git Baby is a git and github fan, let's start git clone.
