Hello!  I was having some slow computer problems last week, and I ran my super antispyware program to see if there was anything that it would pick up, and it did.  There were several of the typical cookie type securtity threats, in addition to some trojan virus thing.  I really did not pay attention to the exact culprit, but went ahead and quarantined and removed all.  It rebooted my machine, and to be honest, I'm not sure if this happened at that reboot or not, as I walked away from the computer and others in my household also use this computer.  But, it now has gone back to the original windows screen, and I have noticed that many of the defaults are set incorrectly - such as the printer was set to OneNote...  My dropbox is no longer on the computer either - not a huge problem, but I thought this was strange.  Does anyone have any insight into what may have happened and if I need to be overly concerned about it?
