I think quiteman7 is dead on! Smit-fraud! It could have come in with an anti spyware program that you either purchased or got for free via download on the internet. Did you do that recently??? There are rogue programs out there that are available and they do not clean or protect your computer, but rather infect your computer! A list of such programs can be found by clicking HERE
Follow quiteman7's advice and everything will work out in the end. Have patience though as it may take a while to get it right.
