Have you recently removed viruses or malware from your system? If so, this is likely to be something that was leftover from an incomplete removal.

Download and install Autoruns ( Free at: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx )
In the "Everything" tab, scroll down the "Image Name" column until you find both of the items that you've mentioned above.
Remove the checkmarks that are on the left side of the page (for those items).
Reboot to see if you've fixed it.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
