Yes, the light should be on. You sound a little paranoid

Make sure computer is completely updated (makes attacks harder). Try malwarebytes free to use as a deeper scan (but efficient and lightweight): Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - CNET Download.com

Jack's link goes to MalwaresBytes on my comp, not Cnet.

With sites like Cnet, if the OP doesn't check "custom" and uncheck all the crap, he'll be uninstalling all the junk.

Hey mate. Click Jack's link. Now scroll down to 'free malwarebytes download'. Where does the link go? Not trying to rub it in, but it does go to the same place CNET

Feel free to post info that you feel may help the OP. He is thinking he might have been hacked. Anyone have any more suggestions for the guy?

Just a mirror. Malwarebytes uses many different ones. CNET is just as good, or you can use fileforum. same item gets downloaded (but never directly from malwarebytes.org)

I do understand what DustSailor has pointed out. It didn't use to do that. I will keep looking.
