No one but me was around. I ran Malwarebytes and Norton and they didn't find anything. However, I was talking to a friend a couple of seconds ago and they were telling me that the are having the exact problem. They have Windows XP and that has been happening to them since Friday. They are thinking it has to do with the updates on Friday that were installed. They also told me that on my modem/router that when you have spyware (and you're not accessing the internet), the lights for the internet on your internet equipment will be flickering even though you're not on the internet. The other thing he said was sluggish performance, low computer juices (CPU, memory, etc.)
Makes perfect sense!
