Answer
Hello Kirupairajah

Happy New Year and Thanks for the question. I have taken it from the question pool as nobody else answered it before.

First of all, something very important: Never ever use a PC without any antivirus software installed! It could be very likely that you are infected with a virus, your PC acting weird as you describe it is a sign of it!

Burn an antivirus boot CD and do a scan. Burn it on a PC that is with antivirus and not infected!

You can get more info about the Comodo Rescue CD and how to burn it here: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/antimalware/fl/comodo-rescue-disk-review.htm


Antivirus programs are available in many flavors, many of them are free, so there is NO EXCUSE for not using any antivirus program!


I'm using e.g. the Free Commodo Internet Security Suite, it even includes a firewall!: https://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/free-internet-security.php

Hope this helps!
All the best!
