I checked a whois database and that IP is some school/college in Amsterdam. Looks pretty sus! Run through this security check for a start:

Do you have any anti-spyware installed? If not download and update all of the following:A-squared complements anti-virus software by specializing in detecting Trojans, Dialers and Spyware. It is free for private use but registration is required.
Download it from here: A-squared

Reboot 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

See if that helps :thumbsup:
