Try doing a virus scan using Anti-Malwarebytes.

Actually it's called Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. As in the company's name is Malwarebytes and it's their Anti-Malware software.

HERE -- or more directly in the link provided by Neodude

They have a free version, which I highly recommend and a paid version, which I have never used because the free version works so well.
