Do I have a virus, keylogger, or have been hacked in some way?

Recently I feel like I've been hacked or someone has control of my computer because last night my resolution suddenly went down and a ton of internet explorer pages opened. I recently accidentally accepted a contact request from someone I didn't know on Skype. I removed them immediately but it happened after I did that.
I did a scan with AVG and it removed TrojanRansomer.dbb but it was a file that wasn't associated with Skype.

Hello Mario
You are allowed access through Skype. It is not advisable
Do you know what is the person to whom you allow access?

First update your AVG to date and run a full scan

Then please create AVG Rescue CD on USB stick, and scan it with your computer

Follow the steps to perform a clean boot from CD or USB stick
And then scan your computer

I do not know the person I accidentally accepted a contact request to, I have already removed him. It should be of note that nothing weird has happened recently. Everything that was going on before hasnt been going on. I don't know what this means. I updated my AVG and ran the scan but it didn't turn anything up. I'll post back again when I make the rescue CD on my USB.
