I think you should go through ANYTHING Windows wants to install on an "update" with a fine tooth comb.

Personally, I wouldn't let it download a text file without me giving it authorization.

Did you install anything else?

EDIT: Call Ghostbusters? No that was totally unproductive but I'm stumped.

nope i haven't installed anything else, also i checked when the shortcuts for the programs were created, they say 3 am, which is super super weird, because i turned it off at 1 am and went to sleep...

Turn off Windows update, encircle it with crosses and sew the ground with salt so that nothing may ever rise again.

Are you sure no-one else uses your computer?

Microsoft and Google are competitors. I highly doubt that Microsoft would offer an automatic install of Google's search bar, given that they want you to use Live Search instead.

You downloaded and installed something then hit the [next] Buttons without looking properly.
