Like Frankie12 said, download HijackThis and submit a log to the HJT Forum on this site, then sit back and wait patiently for a reply - the expert volunteers will get to you as soon as they can.

Here is a blurb on installing HJT in your system:
  • Create a new folder, under the C: drive, called "hjt". If it already exists delete any files that may be in it. If you have a shortcut to HijackThis on the desktop, delete it.
    To make a new folder go to Start>My Computer, then double click on the icon for the disk drive (C:) a window will open showing you the folders and files already in the C: drive. Open the 'File' menu at the top of that window and there should be a 'New >' entry in the menu. Hold your mouse pointer over this and a submenu will appear to the right. Move into the sub-menu and click 'Folder'. The sub-menu will disappear and a new folder will be in the window waiting for you to name it. Name it "hjt".
  • Download the latest version of HijackThis from the following link:
    HijackThis Download Link
    In the 'Save To:' box type "c:\hjt"
  • Unzip HijackThis to the folder you created:
    Navigate to the hjt folder and double click on the HijackThis.zip file. For WindowsXP in the left hand column click 'Extract all Files' the Extraction Wizard will pop up. Click Next, then Browse. Select the HJT folder you created, then click OK. OR If you have WinZip installed you answer 'Agree' and a window will open showing you HijackThis.exe inside the zip file. Click the 'Extract' icon. An extract window will open. In the 'Folders/Drives' section select the C: drive and then the 'hjt' folder. In the "Extract to:" pane it should show "c:\hjt". Select the "All files" button and tick "Overwrite existing files" then click the "Extract" button on the right. Close Winzip.
You should now have HijackThis.exe in your hjt folder.
