Sounds like Antivirus 2009. OR, whatever name it's going by this week. Started out as MS Antivirus.

All you need to do, is download the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and kick this thing to the curb!

Information about MS Antivirus on Wikipedia.org,
Download page for the free version of Malwarebytes,
(Go down to -> Download Now (2.83MB) in blue. The other download buttons, are ad's for other stuff)

When you download, install, and have Malwarebytes running, DO NOT click on anything!
You will see pop-up after pop-up. So may in fact, that you won't be able to see if Malwarebytes is running. IT IS!
If you start clicking on those pop-ups, you'll just slow Malwarebytes down.

Some are real pop-ups from Microsoft Windows. Some are fake from MS Antivirus. The fake ones look REAL!
Even if you do click on the real ones, Microsoft Windows didn't so you any good in the first place, and sure isn't going to now!

Takes about 32 minutes. It DOES work! Don't be fooled just because it's free!
The symptoms you describe are almost certainly the result of spyware which you downloaded.
You need to install a good anti-spyware program and run a full scan for spyware. This will almost certainly solve your problem.
If your system fails to boot up due to errors, try booting your system in safe mode.
Do a google search for an anti-spyware program.
There are many free applications on the internet which work well.
Good luck.
