✔ Best Answer
sounds like an unwanted rootkit. Try these 3 progs in EXACTLY the order listed and DO NOT REBOOT untill the last program has run
1- rkill.exe
http://www.technibble.com/rkill-rep...
2- tdss killer
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
3- Malwarebytes

If that doesn't cure your problem...try the SAME in safe mode....

Thanks! rkill.exe and Malwarebytes found nothing/had no issues, tdss kill found a rootkit which I deleted. I haven't had any problems since.

I will get back to you if something else pops up, otherwise it seems you have solved my issue. Thank you.
