If you think you are infected submit a hijackthis log here.

How to submit a hijackthis log

Download Hijackthis

Try installing and running A2 Free and Ewido

I'd also run Spybot and Adaware

If your using Win2K/XP run adaware/spybot from "safe mode with command prompt"

At the C:\ prompt type the following:-

cd\
C:\progra~1\spybot~1\spybotsd.exe /autocheck /autofix
cd\
C:\progra~1\lavasoft\ad-awa~1\ad-aware.exe

The first thing to do would be to run Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy if you have them on your computer.

If you do not, download them, install them, UPDATE THEM, and run their scans setting them to fix what they find.

*AdAware SE: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

*Spybot S&D: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

If your problem still remains after running these two scans follow the instructions given on the link posted by stidyup for posting a HJT log here.
