First steps:
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: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:

I have done all that you said, but the problem is still there. :thumbsup:
But I noticed something strange:
1. In C:\Windows\System32 there is a file called "kernels32.exe"
2. That file is always running in the background
3. It puts himself to the startup, but it cannot be removed from the startup
4. I can't delete it
5. Maybe this file is part of Windows and I know that it must have been changed some time
But i'll tell you something else: when I first had the problem with unwanted sites I reinstalled Windows XP Pro (I'm a master in reinstalling Windows) but that didn't solve the problem, and before reinstalling i have reformatted the hard disk!
I don't know what this means. Can the Windows XP install CD be infected??!! (Hope not, but if it is i'll use the other Windows XP Pro CD wich has no Service Packs)
Very strange is the fact that I found the virus [COLOR=red]Win32/Tufik.A [COLOR=black]in the BSPlayer install package wich I downloaded from BSPlayer site!!!
If I will know something else I will write it down immediately.
But I'm still worried angry and sad. :flowers: :trumpet: :inlove: :huh: I hate stupid spyware!
I also have a screenshot of a page and maybe you would like to see it. I can send it to your e-mail adress if you want, maybe that helps me.

Looks like you have a Trojan.

Run these online scans:
aČ Online-Check

Also run these online virus scanners:

If that doesn't help, then I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
