As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

==>PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS<== unless a log is specifically requested.

Which browser are you using?

Hello what you have here is a tracking cookie. It's a small piece of text stored on a user's computer by a web browser. Being simple pieces of text, cookies are not executable. They are neither spyware nor viruses, although cookies from certain sites are detected by many anti-spyware products because they can allow users to be tracked when they visit various sites. WIKI

How to completely eliminate tracking cookies
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

I have no suggestions other than seeing if it's hooked inside.
You will need to run HJT/DDS.
Please follow this guide. go and do steps 6 thru 8 ,, Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Hijackthis. Then go here HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal ,click New Topic,give it a relevant Title and post that complete log.

Let me know if it went OK.
