Hmm, that is very strange indeed.



Free stuff:
For a free antivirus you can check out clamwin, it's a free antivirus for Windows, and the virus database is updated frequently, but gives no active protection. I think you should be Ok with what you have though.

For spyware there is SpyBot Search & Destroy I use it regularly and have no probs with it.

Adware, check out Ad-Aware, Lavasoft do a free version, but I don't think you get active protection with the free one. It does do it's job though, as with all security-related products, scan regularly.


Another tool you may want to look into is HijackThis, this program gives you a log which you can give to someone who knows what they are looking at, or just googling the stuff you don't understand.
