My Pc is Infected

Hi everyone. I believe I have a virus on my pc. I was on my pc and I had several windows open. when I tried to close them they continued to reopen. This action lasted for 1 minute until I shutdown my pc. When I restarted the pc, everything seems alright. The same action happened two days ago. Is there a new virus or torjan lurking around? I ran a full virus scan with mcrosoft essentials and nothing was found. Any assistance will be appreciated. deanie44

Another option to consider if Windows Offline Defender. This is a boot disk which checks your system at start up. D/L it on a clean PC and then run it on yours.

What is Windows Defender Offline?
