Are you sure your a-v software is up to date. If not there is a free a-v
program called AVG you can try.
You didnt mention spyware tools. Get Adaware and Spybot.

Both are freeware spyware tools, and can scan and remove most spyware. You
can get paid-for versions but the free ones are all you'll need.
