Hi there,

Toshiba laptop
Windows 7

All was going peachy up until a few weeks ago.
I started noticing my comp started taking on a mind of its own.

I get boxes pop up on sites ive used many times saying "this site is encrypted do you want to proceed".

When i use adobe i get a box saying something to the effect of " error, this program has something wrong with it" yet it starts up no probs.

Microsoft Office...Word..It doesn't save all my "saved" items OR it changes things.

Notepad doesn't Nuke text, so i deleted one, re-loaded another but still same problem.

My "pulsing line" (its name is eluding me..lol)The line that shows were you are writing text does leaps and bounds.
E.G...I could be typing away, look up and find that the "p line" has jumped in the midst of another sentence.
All I'd written was now in the middle of another sentence.

Cd/dvd player keeps disappearing.

I've run cleaners through but found nothing.
Malwarebytes, SB search and Destroy, 2 other online cleaners/virus detectors.
Did a boot scan with Avast. I use Ccleaner on a regular basis.(more than a few times a day)

Still nothing found?????

Thank you
