Download Security Check by screen317 from
http://screen317.spywareinfoforum.org/
Save it to your Desktop.
Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.

You can download the FREE version of Sphinx Firewall from here: Windows7FirewallControl: Sphinx Software
This should give you some control on outgoing and incoming events and protection.

Don't give up your protection by configuring the firewall to allow malicious programs!!
