    Trying to access one of my hard drives resulted in My Computer locking up, and upon ending the process explorer seems to get shut down. Task manager wouldn't come up so I'm forced to reset. Also trying to play something in winamp resulted in a sound driver error, when it was working fine beforehand.

    I'm currently running Avast and MalwareBytes, and will keep this topic updated, I hope I can fix this....

    If anyone has any input please share.

    *EDIT*

    I'm hoping this was just a random fluke and I'm being paranoid about nothing. Both MalwareBytes and Avast have come up with absolutely nothing on my main drive, though I'm still scanning my backup drive.

    *EDIT*

    Weird, all those problems stopped on their own, guess it was just a fluke.
