A nasty? Looks to me like a hacker(Chinese?) tried to hack you and left a 'gift' behind. There're several excellent free cleaners around. Scan with one(or several) AFTER you reboot and see if that helps.

MalwareBytes freebie would be a good one to start with:

Derek mentioned Malwarebytes, but linked to ADWcleaner. Here is the Malwarebytes link: http://www.filehippo.com/download_m...

Additionally, I suggest scanning with SuperAntispyware.

Do you use Dropbox, Facebook, or Skype?

Edit: @ reply 4: Life happens. =)
