I have a dell notebook that I got from a friend and when I go to type an address in my browser, the screen minimizes and the start menu keep poping up. Also I was trying to install microsoft office and during the time I am putting the code, it will not let me put more than 3 charactors in before the start menu start poping up and not letting me enter anything else.

I believe that's a typical symptom of an infection.

What malware scans have you run...or tried to run?

What malware defense programs are currently installed?

No, do NOT run Combofix!!!

Running Combofix without expert supervision could lead to an inoperable computer.

It would be safe to run SuperAntiSpyware.

Did Malwarebytes find any infections?
