Have you tried downloading and update it and run the program

http://filehippo.com...nload_ad-aware/

then do a prefetch

From start..run..type in
prefetch..click ok
go to edit..select all
on any blue file..right click delete
confirm delete

then try this ...check disk will run and do some repairs
my computer..click c:drive
properties..tools
check now..check both boxes..
click start..then restart computer
this goes through 5 stages
takes about 2 hours

if you feel that your computer has been comprised with malware then go here
