Possible Computer Infiltration?

Hey,

I watch alot of movies on my laptop and ever since i've installed a mp3 convertor program everytime I watch a movie in fullscreen it jumps out of fullscreen about every 10 minutes or so. From past experience when programs jump out of fullscreen it means the computer has a screenshot being taken of it.

I have gotten rid of the mp3 convertor, but it still happens. McAfee(I still have a 3 year subscription) and Webroot Spyware Sweeper do not detect it. I believe it is being caused by a change in a windows file I might have sanctioned(possibly dwm.exe).

So the question is:
-Am I just being paranoid or is there something out like this?
-If yes to the above what should I do?

Thanks

RE: Possible Computer Infiltration?

Hopefully it's just paranoia but I suppose it is possible. Try a couple of extra (free) anti-spyware tools:

and/or a couple of online scans:
