artsy, possible it's a nasty? I'm thinking worm/trojan. Online games seem to be a fertile source for them. Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Superantispyware can do the job and you can get it free @:
among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update prior to running and disable 'restore' (restart after cleaning) so it doesn't get put back. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try.

This makes no sense though. If it was a trojan, wouldn't it have showed up sooner? I've been playing this same Ragnarok online game for months. Also the other people playing it with me aren't having any problems.

Edit- just ran the malwarebytes thing, no malicious software. Now what?
