What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? Have you tried doing your scans in "Safe Mode"? Are you doing scans while logged into the "Administrator Account" or an "account with administrator privileges"?

You need to start there first. If you don't have any anti-virus or anti-malware programs, see BC's list of Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps. There are several free online anti-virus scans listed which you can perform. I would also recommend that you download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free in "Safe Mode".
Please update the defintions before performing a scan. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and unzip into the program's folder.
