I have no idea what's going on. My computer is running very slowly. When I boot the computer up, and the Windows desktop comes up, an installer window pops up. it's just a plain grey window that has a cancel button, and the blue bar above says "AiO Installer." This comes up several times, and I cancel several times. Eventually, it stops popping up. Also, two semi-transparent icons appear on my desktop while I'm canceling the installer several times. They look identical, the plain generic icon of a page with a program window, and they have similar names, such as "vrehkty.t"
My antivirus software apparently got erased (the icon is in the tray, but when I double click to bring it up, an install window and then an error window pop up). The only security program I can run in normal mode is Ad-aware. In safe mode, I can also run ewido, but after a few minutes, the computer just shuts off. In normal mode, ewido and hijackthis will not run. Their windows come up, but they immediately disappear.

I am about to go nuts. Please help.
