laptop running windows 7 blacked out then started glitching

ok well i was on my laptop and it randomly turned black and acted like i shut the lid so basically it went into sleep mode. so i had to close the lid and then open it again to make it turn back on. so after it started working again it started acting pretty strangely i already went into full details on this youtube video by recording it then using the annotationsso if you could watch this it would be great.
YouTube - whats wrong
and dont say its a virus 100% sure its not a virus

for the others that dont want to watch the video its basically really glitching i cant click my bookmark page in google chrome i cant grab the scroll bar in IE and the start menu is super glitchy it seems like the code or something is messed up. it goes away sporradically too.

try a system restore point if you have one and run a virus scan with malwarebytes. (Download the free version)

If I'm not mistaken you are using spybot. Or at least that is what it looked like. We (as in everyone on the planet) can never be sure it is not a virus. Viruses slip past AVs and aren't detected on scans thousands of times a day. Malwarebytes does a good job of picking up some viruses that others miss. If it doesn't pick one up we can try to see if something else could cause it, but it is one of the most likely problems and can be fixed without a reinstall.

Its an antivirus/antispyware program. In that case I have no clue what I saw on you screen in that video. Maybe I missed an annotation. What makes you so sure its not a virus? A virus could easily cause the symptoms you have and I have actually seen a virus do something similar. The OS was XP, and the browser was IE, but she also couldn't open her favorites. Most of the other symptoms weren't there, but the point remains.
