I restarted my computer earlier on then came back to it and was shocked to find that Nero Back Up and Restore had been opened, and about 53 times. :o  I, personally didn't open this program. 

 

I restarted my computer again after only one tab of Nero closed (after trying to close all 53 tabs simultaneously), which cleared them all, but I remain puzzled as to whether my computer has been hacked into.

 

I presently have Windows Vista as my operating system and am currently scanning with Super Anti-Spyware and will also scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware when that has finished, to see if they detect anything, but any advice you can give me on determining if my computer has been hacked into and how to trace and remove the unwanted programs would be most helpful, so my computer is clear of viruses and malware.

 

I regularly scan my computer for viruses and malware, but it's odd how my Nero program opened up itself.

Well the Nero BackItUp is a pretty shameful program to start with...


I don't always use Internet Explorer, but when I do, it's to download a different browser.

What's wrong with Nero BackItUp?

 

I've never used this section of Nero.
