I have a problem with my computer running by itself. Even when I am not connected to the internet my computer automatically opens Paint program and squibbles a picture, then closes. Also the calculator opens and closes on its own. I have tried several different spyware removal programs such as McAfee and Windows Beta. Can someone please help with this situation? My McAfee subscription has just expired and was wondering if I should renew or buy another type of anti-virus /security program.

Have you tried a System Restore?

For an Antivirus, and Firewall program, I'd use one from our list:
Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps
They're free, and will perform just as good as the "pay for" versions.
