Answers :

This sounds like it could be related to Malware. I would suggest three things. A malware scan, a maintenance cleaning, and checking your startup applications.

To run a malware scan goto: www.trendmicro.com/housecall

And follow the instructions on the page, let this run, until the results dialogue window pops up, this make take a while. 1-3+ hours. Just let it run, you do not need to attend it once it tells you it is scanning.

For maintance cleaning, visit this site to download an application called CCleaner
http://www.filehippo.com/download/file/df09062a5bdcfd3a0a0cf31f7117c0cb566fe5b698d89848911da4e434cb72f5/

After these steps.
To adjust what programs you have starting up in the beginning:

Start > Run > Type "MSCONFIG" > Click the Startup Tab then un-check any program entries that you don't need starting up in the beginning. This does not remove them from your computer, just from starting up in the begining and taking resources in the background. When you need the program, you can simply click on its link in your start menu. It is your choice what you keep and what to remove.
