Uninstall it and these error messages stop.

What are bitcoins and bitcoin miners?
Let's put it this way: If you do not know what Bitcoins are and if this is your computer, I would wipe the hard disks as soon as possible and reinstall Windows.

The command prompt dialogs, messages I quoted in my previous post are typical CGMiner dialogs. They simply tell how the mining is going, in your case for instance that when trying to send mined Bitcoins, the receiving end does not answer but CGMiner has found another network node and swaps to that, and so on.

Read more:I repeat: if all this is unfamiliar to you, someone else is using your PC over network. Wipe and reinstall.

Oh.... So uh basicaly i have to delete everything on my pc?completely and then reinstall all the drivers again?also when i first installed the OS it kept telling me i had to activate it. Now this would have been fine since i had the product code and stuff except everytime i put it in it said it was not real. Which was a lie because i had bout it new directly from amazon. Anyway I called microsoft and they got it all figured out. Will i have to go through that process again? and also i know waht wipeing the hard drive means but uh... what would that involve. And yes i seriously have no clue what bitcoins are so yeah i guess thats bad

Also even when I first installed the OS it was still giving me crap about not being the admin even though I was. Will I have to deal with that still after wiping the hard drive or will that go away?

You have to start from the very beginning.

Use this to completely wipe the drive, then reinstall Windows from scratch.

Of course not. It is your PC, your Windows, I have no right to tell you to wipe the HDD empty and start from beginning.

It is your decision, of course. You alone can decide if you let people you do not know to use your computer without your permission in illegal activities(*).

Please do exactly as you wish. I only recommended something, told you what I would do if it was my computer. But really, I'm in no position to order you to reinstall. It's a free world.

If you decide do the one and only intelligent thing, start as fellow member Golden told:

(*) = Before some "Free Internet" or Tor or whatever activist comments this, of course I know Bitcoin mining is not illegal when done on your own PC or with PC owner's permission. Done like this, on another owner's PC without the owner's acknowledgement it becomes illegal.
