I scanned with AVG, but I now downloaded Malwarebytes and did a full system scan, here is the result:

Those two files it found, are from many years ago when I ran a server and backed up and moved files to a new drive.
I never ran those in the past five years and 3 or so systems ago.
I have a lot of old backups and files from my older systems on these drives.
Anyways, I removed them and still have the same problem.

I haven't made any changes and after the malware check, it still was doing it.
However, this morning I booted up and so far, for the past 4 hours it didn't do it.

oh dear oh dear... when will this ever stop?

@ Data

The same problem has been occuring with me and i updated from windows vista 32bit. Now i have windows 7 32bit and yes the problem occurs about every 20-30 minutes. (I haven't timed it, all i know is that it interrupts my gaming and is very annoying). I am installing that malware and i am going to run it and see what that does. If any solution is found please post immediately. You have been very helpful.

I have not had the problem since, I don't know what fixed it, but found something interesting, that could have something to do with it.
To make sure, I installed this fix too.
