Restored my PC to yesterday after starting up in safe mode and it appears to have fixed it. The updates i installed yesterday must of caused it. Edit: Just ran a malware/spyware scan to be sure and they picked up a few things, dont know if that was the cause of it though. One thing in particular was "Relevant Knowledge" what monitors your web usage.
