I don't know the answer to your specific problem but I'd be very wary of adding Games Sites to your Trusted Zone - that's really leaving yourself open to attack from any malware running around on those sites (and there will be plenty). What anti-virus and anti-spyware protection are you running at the moment?
You should check your system with some online scans:Online trojan scanner
Here are some links to free online Anti-Virus scans
. They do take some time to load and run and in some cases you can only use Internet Explorer, with ActiveX enabled, to access them but they are an excellent support for your existing anti-virus program. (Run at least two of them).Panda
Active Scan online - http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
Internet Explorer only. Requires email address. Requires Active-X components to be installed. Approx 12MB download.BitDefender
online scan - http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php
Internet Explorer only. Must agree to a EULA. Need to allow installation of an Active X component.Some of the options are not clearly explained.McAfee

Link to 'Online Scan' at the top rhs of the page. Requires IE and Active-X components.
"does not scan RAM, boot sectors and MBRs, so it cannot detect malicious code located in these areas."
