So these are symtoms of what happened on two different computers? If so it could be spyware or a virus. Really nasty viruses can basically uninstall any antivirus you have. Run Ad-Aware and or Spybot and do a complete virus scan. Also another good program to scan your computer with is a-squared. These programs are for Windows.

It sounds like if it was infact malware, it is something capable of an internal network spread.

Do you remember the last thing you ran that you were maybe a little unsure of?

If you could upload it somewhere and post a link I could reverse engineer it and tear the botnet to shreds (assuming it is a botnet) :)

Security Analyst to be here xD

Someone probably snagged your IP while playing the game and remotely loaded something into your system. I've seen plenty of tutorials on a way to do something like that. I personally have just never tried it, even though I have all the tools at my disposal, I just choose not to do something of that manner.
