Hello, I believe that my computer is infected. A little while ago, I got a message from my antivirus (Norton) that it found a virus. So I ran the scan and got rid of it. I also ran anti-spyware(ewido) and anti-trojan (trojan hunter) software to clean my computer out. However, I still believe that my computer is still infected this is because ocasionally and repeatedly, the computer will make mouse-clicking and pop-up noises. Also and more recently, my computer will randomly minimize programs while I am running them. :thumbsup:
This really worried me so i ran MSCONFIG to check out my startup status to make sure that that was ok. There I found a proces called Nvcpl.exe which I found out to be bad so I disabled it. However, my computer is still making wierd noises (through the speakers not the comp itself) and minimizing programs (except the internet) and i need help!!!!!!!
Please if anyone knows what to do kindly tell me.

Hi HopelessHack and welcome to BC

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.

A member of the HijackThis Team will walk you through, step by step, how to disinfect your computer.
Once you post your log, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

Please read, and follow, all directions carefully!!!

Read Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log. < -- link

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, as these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team.
The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies.
If you make another post, there will be 1 reply.

The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
