hi Nicky,,,, have you scanned your system for viruses and spyware.
If not then run a compleat virus scan with your anti virus software,,,, then download this spyware scanner, the free version ,,, update the defonitions and boot in safe mode and run a complete scan.
then download this cleaner and read the instructions in the links i also have posted and clean up your pc



see if any of this helps,,,,,,, good luck

to prevent any program clashes, maybe you can tell us what antivirus program you have installed and what other protection programs are on there. when did you last update them and run each on full deep scans?

(I will see if the Mods will consider this for moving to the 'am I infected' section )

Do the scans, as suggested, and report back with the results. Also, a more detailed description of the problems you're having will help us decide which way we should proceed with your computer
