I don't know what could be causing your very strange problem but would suggest you follow these instructions for your own security:
Is your Anti-virus
program current and updated
? If not you can download a free anti-virus program here (US Link): AVG Free
When you have downloaded and installed it you need to go online to register it and update it. (It will probably prompt you to do this.)
Once you have installed AVG uninstall your old Anti-Virus software because you should only have one running on your system.
Do you have any anti-spyware
installed? If not download and update all
of the following:
Do you have a Firewall
running?: It is better to turn off the Windows firewall and use the firewall built in to your anti-virus program. If that does not have one, download and install Sygate, Kerio or ZoneAlarm. You may have to do some experimentation which will work best with your system. Only run one firewall at any time. You can find links here: Recommended FreewareReboot your computer in Safe Mode
and run the anti-virus scan and anti-spyware scans there.
If you are not sure how to boot in Safe Mode there is a tutorial here: Safe Mode
