1. Have you run a thorough hard drive scan with your resident Anti-virus?
2. Have you used either Ad-Aware SE or Spybot (or both) to check for other forms of Malware?
3. Have you cleaned out your temporary internet files, run scandisk, and defragged recently?
Perhaps we can get to the problem by elimination of the obvious.
Regards,
John
