LOL -- I started to reply but then the dogs wanted to go outside. By the time I posted, you had already replied. Let's just hope one of the solutions works.

Download MSE and install. This is an AV.
Big blue button in the middle "Download". http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/
Update and run a "Full" scan.
If it finds something click "Fix" or "Remove".

When that is done go download Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes
Free version blue button top left of page.
Install, open it then click the Update tab, then update.
Click Scanner tab, then select "Perform full scan". Click Scan.
Remove delete anything it finds.
