Something weird is going on with my PC. It was working fine last night, then today when I went home for lunch and it was doing a lot of random things. I didn't do any updates or change anything so I don't know why it changed (I tried re-starting and that didn't fix it either).

 - When I click anything it opens in a separate window, even when I click page 2 on a google search (normally goes to a new tab). *I tried 3 different browsing programs and they are all messed up (chrome, explorer, and firefox).
 - If I shrink an internet window, nothing will work to bring it back up. 
 - I can't right click to open a pinned item or view them from the bottom bar or my computer.
 - When I try to scroll with the mouse wheel, it won't. Sometimes it goes back a page though.
 - When I click on an internet page instead of clicking there, it highlights a big portion (select all).
 - I can't delete text in certain searches
 - Caps Lock is not on, but typing in all Caps.
 
I tried a system re-store and it was unable to finish.
Does anyone know what's wrong or why my computer did this?

The most likely cause is malware. Please go to the Virus, Spyware, Malware Removal forum, read the first post and follow instructions.

Come back here once you get a clean bill of health if you still have problems.

Not sure what happened, but I was using my coputer, trying to find answers (frustratingly) and then it just started working normal again. That was weird. 
I didn't do any updates or removals.
