Windows Vista, SP2
NOTES: Some things that happened since Friday after using the computer and making sure things were working.
Installed Flash player update. Norton Full System Scan ran late Friday night. Everything normal.
Yahoo Toolbar showed up in IE9 out of the blue. I did have it in add-ons but it was disabled permanently but I could only disable it temporarily. When I tried to disable permanently, it said contact system administrator. So I uninstalled it from Control Panel/Programs.
Sunday night I got a performance alert from Norton NIS about high usage problem and 176 actions performed. I copied to notepad and from what I can remember it had something to do with Firefox cache/doomed files and I think they were deleted when I cleared Firefox cache.
I ran Malwarebytes scan Sunday night. Normal.
Shut down the computer normally and turned it on today and got the Megatrends warning.
My priority is to backup my files. Photos, videos, documents, etc. I was organizing some files over the weekend so I could do a backup.
The Megatrends screen has been up all day. I have no idea what happens when I press F10 or F2 or which one to press.
