Hibernate:
When I try to Hibernate, it'll show a Hibernation screen, but then return to Windows.

Random "Pop Ups":
When I'm using FireFox (haven't tried with any other browser), I will randomly get this weird "Pop Up". It basically opens a new Tab. I immediately close the new Tab, so I don't see the content of the webpage, but I'm pretty sure its a "Fake" Search Engine or Advertisement (no, it is not a Pop Up Advertisement from a website).

Try using IE to see if the brower behavior continues.

Hibernation problems...may sometimes be related to video drivers, you might try uninstalling/reinstalling those.

100% it's not Video Driver... I just tried Googling something, and when I clicked on a result, I got redirected to some other site. (not Google or the result site) Pretty sure I'm infected. MalwareBytes doesn't pick up anything...
Also, in Task Manager, theres a svchost.exe taking up 25k when all the others are taking up <2k. Is that normal?
