    Almost had a heart attack here! I'm using Google Chrome and I was typing in Google when suddenly the page started rotating to the right itself, happened two times, then my screen got black for a few seconds and came back to normal. WTF?!! Anyone know what this means? I'm being hacked, probably?

    Did the entire screen rotate?
    There is a shortcut to rotate the screen (ctrl+alt+arrow key or something), though unlikely you might have hit it accidentally. Seems an unlikely thing for a hacker to do.

    hmm, well to be safe boot into safe mode and turn off your internet so if it is a RAT then the person running it can't connect. Then you should look around for anything suspicious in task manager or do a full scan, etc.
    lots of RATs are hidden to antiviruses

    and a few days back I send svchost.exe to virustotal.com and only eset found a malware, but maybe it was false-positive. Can anyone do this too just to confirm?

    LOL, no but I was typing "orange box" and it happened, then typed again and happened one more time.
    EDIT: just tried what you said and it is exactly the same thing LOL
    EDIT2: and what about the black screen? (it was the whole screen)

    I have Comodo Firewall, Avast! Free and Malwarebytes PRO, and I also use Windows Defender, isn't this enough?

    The search thing when you type in barrel roll and shit is a joke by Google.

    Doesn't do the rotate on orange box for me, as for the black screen maybe your video drivers don't like Chrome's use of OpenGL or something, try updating them.

    The black screen happened only once. I think I will disable internet connection, do full scans, backup my files, do a system restore, and clean my system.

    Can someone that use Windows 7 send a copy of "svchost.exe" to www.virustotal.com ? I want to be sure if it's a false-positive.

    I know, but what about virustotal.com? From 47 scanners, 1 detect a threat, and that's why I asking for one more time if someone can run a test there to see if there will be the same result. Please:(

    1/47 on a system file is a false positive, don't worry.
