Sounds like some kind malware infection. I was going to suggest checking out the landzdown (dot) com site, but get an error message that the "page cannot be displayed".

Did either of those find/remove any malware?

Sometimes doing a reset or a clean install is the only way to get rid of malware. Is your PC on a network and one of your other devices is infected and spreads it to this PC?

If you decide to do a reset or clean install, be sure to back up all your personal files on external media and make sure you have the product keys for all your apps, eg Microsoft Office etc. Assuming this is Win 10, its product key is embedded in the motherboard so you shouldn't have to enter its key to activate Windows again.
