As for the error. I did a bit of research and it sounds like a virus type called a hijacker. Update your antivirus and Antispyware and give it a good scan. If your products are lacking you can use AVG Free antivirus and Spybot Search and Destroy antispyware. Both are free and have given me years of wonderful results.

I'm sure you know this, but make sure you didn't put the battery in up side down. Next step: Scan for viruses and spyware as stated above. I have a strong hunch you'll find something.
