Good chance I have picked up some malware.  Symptoms started that IE would longer show what websites, inquiries were open.   Then tried clicking on IE (pinned to bar) and nothing would happen.  Went to a search program I used (IXQuick) and something almost immediately started loading a continuing string of pluses (+++++++++++  ...  ).


Went to bleepingcomputer to get help and whatever I have picked up started filling in the Username box signin with pluses (++++++++++++++  s  ...).  The only way I could get signed in, thankfully was to highlight and delete (let me do that, then I could sign-in  and let me post this for help.  Any suggestions on how to begin to find out what is causing the problem?  Have run SUPERAntiSpyware , MBAM and MS Security Essentials and none of them finds anything


Thanks in advance for your time, help and expertise
