Just wonder if this might be some sort of virus or malware.

JohnW is your man on this topic but it might be interesting to run this freebie on it, which often finds and fixes things that your Anti-virus can miss:

If it finds anything copy/paste the log on here so that we have a basic idea what is going on.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
