Windows 7: Somethings wrong Win 7 X 64

Also make sure you updated Malwarebytes and run a full scan. It sounds like you got a rogue malware program. Malwarebytes is very good at removing any traces, but I suggest that you boot into safe mode with networking by pressing f8 key while Windows is booting up. Run MAlwarebytes Antimalware and go to the updates tab. Update the program then go back to the scan tab and run a full scan. When it is done remove all found infections, reboot and scan with your AV program you have installed and if you don't have one, Google Microsoft Security Essentials, find, download and install it. Update it and run a full scan with it just to be sure and leave MSE there. It is a great, light and free Antivirus program.

Yes, but a little more bloated than MSE or Avast 5 which are the leanest, meanest free AV's.

By Bloated I mean you may notice it working, whereas you hardly notice Avast 5 if you turn off its annoying update announcement (in Sounds) and MSE is as close to invisible as an AV gets.

I can tell no difference in performance running MSE than running without it.
