When I start up my computer a black window pops up for about ten seconds and then goes away and when I open google chrome a "secure search" site pops up first.  I restarted in safe mode and did a anti malware scan but the computer shuts down suddenly when it finds something.  What do I do?

NOTE 2 SecurityCheck may produce some false warning(s), so leave the results reading to me.
