I scanned using Malwarebytes and also security essentials. No problems
Try system restore and see where that gets you.
Are you running MSE and Avast together? If so pick only one to keep, and remove the other. If you have MSE 4 that just came out a day ago you might as well keep that one and forget about Avast. Try system restore and see where that gets you.
