My PC started to talk about my Windows key and told me not to restart my computer or i will lose all my data, and told me something about windows firewall. I need to know if I got ratted or something.

Malwarebytes antimalware scan asap!


(By 'talking' , do you mean actual audible audio? Any mystery processes on sysinternals' process explorer?)

freefixer is also very effective at showing all startups, processes, redirects, etc...)

standard battery:

Rkill, roguekiller, JRT

MBAM

You got a scare message telling you there is a problem.
The only 'problem' is getting that scare message.
 

There's been an ad with a script that does this going around the advertisement servers used by a lot of websites. So more than likely it's nothing more than a malignant ad loaded by a website you visited as one of their standard random ads.

But you should run malwarebytes anyway on the small chance that it wasn't, in case your system is infected.
