As a precaution try running a malware scan using www.malwarebytes.org and see if anything comes up.

That was the one! Everything seems normal now. Do I have to turn this off every time I log on windows?? It is not an important system process wright? I mean it is not something that should be running? If there is a problem with a setting how can i fix it??

I would look at your MSconfig.. Run Malwarebytes and I will have too suggest that and Microsoft security essentials over avast.

Make sure there are no nasties lurking around....

Check disk runs on EVERY boot
As the title says, it's as though I ran chkdsk /r before I restarted, pressing a key does not cancel it. I ran a chkdsk and it found no errors. Oh, when it runs at boot it gets to 1 second then just stops, pressing keys does nothing, I have to hold the power button and restart then it's fine,...
