Some virii and other malwares will cause your condition. Antivirus programs no matter how good will get swamped by malware preventing them from fully functioning against the Malware infestations.
Suggest installation of MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware, run them concurrently ( at the same time ). Scan and clean with the two programs, reboot, then scan and clean again. You should notice your Antivirus join with the two antimalware programs to detect and clean your infestation ( if that is what is causing your problem and I think that it might be ). If you don't already have an antivirus program, recommend Avast Home Free, not AVG.
You should notice a strong difference after performing the procedures I have recommended. The malwares hide very efficiently from antivirus programs.
All programs I have recommended are FREE or can be used in a free mode of operation.
