Have you got any malware software installed like spybot,adaware etc?

Yes I have spybot search & destroy and AVC. I have never been aware of using any software with adaware. I have looked in my installed programs and there is nothing from adaware

Thanks I will try your suggestion. the funny thing is its only windows defender that keeps telling me this win32/slagent is there. none of the other programs seem to locate it.

This is what trend micro has to say about it click here use removal instructions at your peril, and whatever you do; back-up your files and create a system restore point.
