This morning, I discovered a certain someone had snuck onto my computer to play a flash game she was grounded from. Lo' and behold, she forgets to shut everything off, and as soon as I log in, nothing boots up, aside from my volume and battery meter in the bottom right corner. Confused, I try to open my objectdock, and Windows Live Messenger and the computer asks me what program I want to open it with, and brings up a prompt as if it doesn't recognize the file.

After fighting with it, I got MBAM open; ran the scan, and now it is getting annoying text pop ups. "Don't close this window, you're todays winner,' 'Do you really want to navigate away from this page?' So I try Spybot SND, and they went away, only for my mouse to start acting up. Now the cursor, whereever it's resting assumes as if I clicked there, and typing ends up as gibberish, ex:
I try to type, "I tried to do this" ends up as "I trito doed this"
It also behaves as if I have the scroll on the mouse pressed in, and runs up and down the window.

I have no idea what' going on, but I recieved wonderful help here last time I had an issue... so here I go.

Thank you for the assistance in advance.

Bump... now I'm getting rogue malware called Vista Total Security. It's pretending to be my firewall, and wormed itself into Vista's windows security system. Please assist...
