Every 30 minutes or so, a browser window opens with the following url -

Next a command prompt window opens and executes some set of program and immedietly a pop up asks to download "You have out of date browser..." while in the background a microsoft security update screen is opened.

Everytime i close all these windows and continue to work. But gradually my system performance gets affected very badly. My genral processing speed has decreased to 50% by now.

Some forums say it is because of dhcpclient.exe file and has given a lengthy solution. Since i have very less knowledge about these security things i'm not sure what to follow to get rid of these and save my computer.

Can anyone help me in this?
