Okay my computer started acting weird as browser closing i reopened thinking nothing of it then all of a sudden explorer closed and on top of that a chat box opened and started chatting with me. What i did was reboot into safemode and so far nothing has happened i am running a scan right now and found a folder by the name of Dr.Watson on my drive. I don't know what i should do.

Well it is almost 5 where i am and so far i have had this computer running for a while and whatever it was seems to be gone. Nothing has popped up or anything so i don't think that it is still here but man that was scary when it happened. Anyway thanks for all the help you guys have given me in helping resolve this problem.

Thats the thing though this computer is as up to date as can be all my av software, malwarebytes, java and everything else is updated so i don't know how they found the hole to get in. Oh well at least whatever got in is gone so that is fine with me.

Could be something that stopped getting updates so holes in it aren't being patched, or a hole that hasn't been patched yet.

Or you or somebody else may have simply clicked something without meaning to. Sites are bastards in implementing invisible DIV overlays nowadays to make sure that your first click on a site is clicking a giant invisible link for an advertisement (which gets through browser popup blockers since the browser knows that you clicked it so it thinks you meant to and allows it through).
