    It's been like this for a while, and I'm not sure why. The last time I uninstalled anything was a week ago, but I system restored (due to a virus) to a day before I contracted the virus. While having the virus, i uninstalled a few games to see if it could help: does that have something to do with my current problem?

    See first if some "junk" has been left behind. First run Mbam (malware bytes - free download) to see if any malware remaining, then run Ccleaner (free download) to remove any junk files, then run Ccleaner again to run a registry cleanup (do the recommended registry backup before it proceeds).
