For starters you need to download and run Malwarebytes, then do an online scan with SUPERantispyware. Once you run those and remove anything that they find, then run a scan with HitMan Pro.

Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download

Thank you so much for your time. I can say that my problem seems to be solved. I ran MBAM previously (before my original post) and of course, it picked up a few things. So, after running SAS, everything seemed to get back to normal. I then updated and ran MSE and it picked up 4 java exploits. Do you still suggest running Surfright?

Good to hear it. Yes, I would absolutely run Hitman Pro. Before you scan just uncheck tracking cookies in the settings menu. Let me know what you find!

Sounds like you're clean. Maybe just repeat the MBAM and HMP scans every few days for a couple of weeks to see if any of the signature updates catch anything.
