Odd Windows XP problems.

For a while now, my computer has begun to act oddly, such as:
Internet Explorer asking to access the internet randomly when Internet Explorer is offline, and bringing up ads when I am connected.
Explorer.exe sometimes quitting when I have run a program at full screen, such as Firefox, and quit it. (I only find creating a new task to work)
Large CPU usage spikes when I connect to the internet via Intel PROSet/Wireless, and disconnect.
Intel PROSet/Wireless will show there are no networks available, and connect to one soon after. (The router is within my house, so it is quite close by)
Odd cookies that have network names or names of sites I have never visited, such as offermatica.

I have tried many things such as cleaning up my computer and running McAfee Scans, but the only things I find are linksynergy cookies. And deleting the cookies does not prevent another from appearing.

Helping to solve ANY of the problems above would be grateful for me. :whistling:

Hi GuardianAngel...

Because all these symptoms can be caused by malware, I would suggest you start by letting our experts have a look at the problem first off.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions you'll find there.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Do Not reply to or "bump" your own topic...if it shows a reply, it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
