I have a pc running win7 64bit, lately I've noticed a few strange behaviours;

Loading slowly My computer and the hard drives.

Sometimes slows down when I'm trying to download a file (I mean that when I press save on a file and the saving window opens its stuck for a few sec.

One of my everyday use excell files is suddenly don't open and stucks the program until I reboot (task manager couldn't close it). 

I had a program on my desktop that suddenly changed its name to the same name as one of the folders on my desktop. 

Today I suddenly saw the windows media player open when I didn;t open it. 


I ran a full scan on the ESET NOD (last updated version) - no threat and a full scan on Trojan remover - also no threat found. 

The PC was formatted around 4-6 month ago and acted all fine. 


Any advice???


Thanks in advance

By far the simplest fix would be to use Windows System Restore to roll Windows back to a point in time when your computer was functioning correctly. It allows you to undo system changes without affecting your personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos.

If that doesn't help, try restoring an earlier system image or backup.
