I'd suspect an infection. Try some of these free online scans and I'll move this over to the Am I Infected forum: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/blogs/usas...?showentry=1252
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.
