See if you have a system restore point listed. If so, use it.
You then need to start checking for malware infections.
Start with Adaware and Spybot.
If you do not already have them installed, download, install, update and run them from safe mode.
AdAware SE: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/
Spybot S&D: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html
Be sure to enable “Teatimer” which gives you realtime protection.
Microsoft Windows Defender http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/s...re/default.mspx
This also provides realtime protection.
Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool (Win XP and Win 2000):http://www.microsoft.com/security/malwareremove/default.mspx
AČ - Free from http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4281.html
. Run it, click Search for Updates, then click Scan.
After you install and run all the above, do several web based anti-malware scans, set to fix what they find.
Use Internet Explorer to run these as they require Active X to work:
