I suggest to download and burn one of the Antivirus LiveCDs, boot the system with it and scan the whole system for viruses.

Malwarebytes will often help with the diagnostics. www.malwarebytes.org. easy download. I would recommend going into windows safe mode with networking, probably by tapping f8 during start. Then download from malwarebytes(and allow an update) and do full scan.
