That is Malware. You can't turn it off. You can look online for free system scans that say they can remove it, but I found it never works.

The only thing I found that worked for me was System Restore. This is located in the Accessories tab of the programs menu under System Tools. Hopefully you had it turned on and can restore to the earliest known point before you were infected. :thumbsup:

Please download RogueRemover and save to you Desktop.

* Extract (unzip) the file to a convenient location such as C:\RogueRemover.
(Click here for information on how to do this if not sure. Win 9x/2000 users click here. A ZIP file requires an unzipping utility. If you need one, download 7zip (its free).
* Navigate to the folder you unzipped the files to.
* Double click on the file named RogueRemover.exe.
* Select "Scan" and the program will walk you through the remaining steps.

If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan withAVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 in SAFE MODE

(This is Ewdio 4.0 renamed. If you already have Ewido installed, please update to this version which has a special "clean driver" for removing persistent malware.) Be sure to print out and follow the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions

Just click on the 'Safe Mode' hyperlink that fozzie gave you.
It'll explain everything.
