    Welcome janusz7,
    first things first... What is your computer? We need things like make, model, and OS (version of Windows) I use Windows Live Messenger on my system. You can see what my system is under my "System Specs"

    google for Belarc Advisor and run as an Admin account.
    it will report all missing updates AND profile the system environment.

    You should always run some kind of Firewall!
