Lenovo Y480, Win 8.1. Last month a Malware Bytes update started cannibalizing my system, quarantining over 600 driver files, .dlls and assorted stuff.

So I have a code that prints out the `sys.argv` when the program is ran. How can I parse $ python ./arch.py install * to show `["./arch.py","install","*"]` Instead of `["./arch.py","install",#other files in directory]`?
