Hi Steven,

it is extemely unlikely that you got a virus, after all your are on Linux.

Please see my aswer to your "EMERGENCY" post. I cannot guarantee that 
this will solve it,  but imho it's definitely worth to try as a first 
step. And as far as I remember your problems began after aktivating 
compiz, didn't they?

If you have any more questions, just come back. You are always wellcome!

Kind regards
