Hello BabII_Simzz...

We've been seeing a lot of this lately and I suspect malware is the culprit. Because your Task Manager is not available, let's try a couple of things from Safe Mode.

The first thing to try would be a System Restore. Click Start, then All Programs, point to Accessories, then System Tools, and select System Restore. Choose to restore your computer to an earlier time and choose a date that's before this problem began.

Let me know if this helps...

It would also be a good idea to start a topic in the Malware Forum. Follow the instructions found HERE, then start a topic in that forum...include a HiJackThis log in your initial post. A malware expert will look at the log and determine if you have any nasties on there. Be patient, the malware forum is a very busy place.
