Ive got an Asus X58L series Laptop 1GB RAM and Vista Basic OS

The wallpaper has changed off its own accord 3/4 times in 3 days and the auto hide taskbar has checked itself 2/3 times in 3 days also. Other strange behaviour is clicking on apps someitmes it doesn't work and takes a while other times and quick others. Im ordering another 1GB RAM as this may be the cause for this but the settings changing is worrying me to maybe reinstall windows.

Ive ran Avast full and boot time scan, Malwarebytes, Spybot, Windows Onecareonline scan and Malicious Soft Removal Tool but never found anything. UIve also checked the logs in event viewer but found nothing

Im not sure if im infected. Can someone help me please or have any advice?

Thanks W.T.
Kind Regards
