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.
