Thank you for the clear and helpful instructions.
I ran the Anti-Malware file and it found 3 infected files and removed them. However, the Norton history log is still giving the same "unauthorized access blocked" messages as before, only more frequently now.
I am a little confused by Post #3. Am I posting in the wrong forum? Am I not listening to the right person? I would very much appreciate any advice you have to give me but am a newbie here.

This began on the 16th after I returned from a trip. I downloaded Windows updates and ran live update on Norton.

Also, for the message, I used to get it sometimes (I use Kaspersky Internet Security), and it is just sometimes Windows Cataloguing files, or something as simple as a startup item processing. I turned off the notification so it wouldnt show. But, this doesnt mean that this is the case for you, it may or it may not be.
Lets do another scan to see some more of the situation:
Please run ATF and SAS:

Was the computer left on and 'unattended' while you were away ; OR;was it possible for anyone to have used it during your absence?
How did you do the Java update installation ; were you asked to uninstall your old Java program at all
And please advise if you have System Restore enabled?
