Since foul play is suspected, it would be best to run some scans or better still to use the most recent image of the hdd to
reinstall. That is, if you have a backup image.
Scan your computer using this: AdwCleaner Download
Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click on Delete.
Confirm each time with Ok.
You will be prompted to restart your computer. A text file will open after the restart.
Please post the contents of that logfile with your next reply.
You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.
