The virus must have affected your CAPS LOCK key!!! Quick!! Smash the keyboard with a hammer to prevent the spread of this horrible virus :thumbsup: Joking...

First, I would suggest you continue to use Firefox and forget about IE except for doing windows and office updates.

Second, I would say that's malware or a browser hijack, though you may have viri (viruses) in addition.

I would begin my downloading, updating, and running Spybot search & destroy, Lavasoft's AdAware, and Microsofts AntiSpyware programs. They are all free.

Do you have an anti-virus program installed? If so update it and run a complete scan. If not AVG antivirus is free and a decent performing product.

Try the above and we can go from there :flowers:

Just my .02 (YMMV)

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

How to submit a hijackthis log

Download Hijackthis

Try running the following from safe-mode Sysclean you'll also need the virus template file from here lpt***.zip

or

DrWeb CureIT

If your good with the command line also try Sophos Command Line scanner

Also install and run 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
