Hi -
Please list your Make and Model if you can -
Can you please describe the situation a bit better and have you done anything to try and fix things - Do you get any error messages -
First you can run chkdsk /r - Note the gap between k and /
Type this into Run Box and click OK - This will take an hour or more to run (on average) -

Download TFC Cleaner from http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/files/download/187-tfc-temp-file-cleaner-by-oldtimer/ Save to your desktop > Double click the Icon (Black Garbage can) and click Start -
The computer will close all programs and ask you reboot after it removes un-needed Temp Files -

Just a few starting points for you -

Thank You

Please Note - We will look at basic cleaning and problems first -
thus far there is no indication of malware. From Orange Blossom -

Have you ran any malware programs? Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware for example? Try this link first, helps with slow computers: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic87058.html
If then you still have issues then try here and follow the instructions: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html . You have already done step 2 hopefully, it is the first link. Good luck.
