Ok my computer has been acting slow and programs are not opening like they should (I need to use Microsoft office 2010 word which is installed on my computer but it won't open at all). Also my Internet browser hasn't been working properly either (I'm not as concerned about this since I have an iPod touch that I use to get online with.

I have tried 4 different antivirus programs: avg, malwarebytes anti malware, super antispyware, and windows security essentials. Now I have deleted one before installing another because having more then 1 causes them to interfere with each other. Non of the programs show that there is anything wrong with my pc. I have used all 4 in regular mode as well as safe mode with no luck. So what could be causing my problems and how do I fix it. Your help is appreciated. If you need any more info just ask.

.dll files missing, browser opens new tabs, google search redirects.
Hello, I'm a complete computer novice, but I know things are not right. At startup I get two pop-ups stating some .dll files are missing. I've googled these files and only got a couple of hits, it seems they're some kind of virus. My browser also opens up new tabs on it's own, and google search...
