You probably have a rogue virus - usually presents itself as a legit antivirus when it's really fake. It tells you things that are false. They are hard to get rid of...

Hmmm this is beginning to sound familiar; hopefully people HERE catch my drift.

People don't hack into your computer to install spyware and junk, they don't have to when you open the back door for them by clicking on a dirty link, or visit a site with a contaminated ad or image or over all just bad. This happens a lot by accident, as they are disguised to look legit. The other way they get in is through illegally downloaded media or software.
