Hi there, jkrowling, I'm SongCloud and I'll be assisting you today!

First of all, what are the names of the programs causing the security alerts? If there are more than a few programs triggering the alerts, let me know a few of the names and, if possible, the process names as well. Are you using task manager to view the running programs or another tool like process Explorer or Process Viewer? What flavor of Windows 7 are you running? (Home Premium, Business, Ultimate?) Also, is this a 64-bit machine or a 32-bit machine?

Please let me know the answers to these questions or if you need further instructions to find the answers. Thanks!

You could start by running Ccleaner slim:
to clean up all the excess junk on your pc safely
Then you can run these 3 progs in EXACTLY the order listed

1- rkill.exe (stops malware processes that are running)
2- tdss killer (removes unwanted rootkit if found)
3- malwarebytes (run a full scan and fix all it finds and then reboot)

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions 7 Golds
