Yeah of course there are free antivirus programs! One of the best ones out there is Avast! Antivirus which can be downloaded here for free:
Avast Free Antivirus 5.0.594.100712

But your problem is probably a malware/spyware so in addition to the antivirus, you're going to need a few other scanners. I recommend also downloading the following.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

All three of the programs listed above are free to use. Download them, install them, and run them one by one. They may take a while to scan depending on the number of files you have on your computer but should find what's in your computer. Good luck. The links are virus-free so no need to worry.

We have self-help guides for removing common malware. Please see: How to remove Sysinternals Antivirus
-- When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware report in your next reply.

If the program will not run, be aware that some types of malware will target Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and other security tools to keep them from running properly. If that's the case, please refer to the suggestions provided in For those having trouble running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
