Hello Everyone,

For the past two days my computer has been acting funny. It is lagging, the desktop theme is slightly altered, i have drop shadows on my desktop icons for no reason that i cannot change. Additionally i'm constantly receiving “Malicious URL Blocked” Avast Pop Up Notifications while visiting typical sites, gamespot, yahoo, etc.

When i receive the pop up it has a path file similiar to C:\WINDOWS\system32\Winniet (dont quote me) the pop up only comes up for a few seconds so i couldnt record the exact path.

I ran Malwarebytes, SUPERantiSpyware and Avast scans on safe mode (no networking) but im still having the same issue.

Can someone offer any assistance?

I'd re-install Windows.
