    I'm doing avira and malware scans now. Checked firewall all good.

    I was trying to import a unitypackage in unity when all of a sudden a whole bunch of programs and windows opened up. Some where stuff I had others were .exe processes you find running in Task manager that you shouldn't even be able to see. Also a window that said Transfer 100% and once I tried to quit it would say Transfer isn't over ?

    Notice the green rectangle? I'm not sure what to make of this but I restarted and things seem normal. Again doing scans.

    Teamviewer?

    Might be some kind of backdoor thru that.

    yeah I decided to disable it from start up and I have closed it off.
    That what Team Viewer does when someone takes control however, all my programs did open, so maybe that just opened as well. It did not come up prior and it usually pops up on my main screen not the smaller one.

    Well doesn't seem like it but I did notice TeamViewer was still open seems to restart process even though its closed and I don't see it ever after telling it to terminate.

    Its late so I'm going to sleep but this was odd. Hope it was just a windows fluke?

    Dont take any chances! Do a full reformat and reinstall.

    Also turn off and unplug the machine until then.

    Avira picked up a few unwanted stuff. Removed them.

    What do you mean exactly?

    Try Gmer. It's a pretty good little rootkit scanner

    you were trying to import a unity pack from unity when all your progs opened suddenly. That tells me unity has an exploit and thus unsecure
