Wacked out dialog boxes, etc.

Hello Everyone.

My laptop has started to show some really strange signs of a virus or so some sort of corruption. My dialog boxes are missing the text on their buttons. The selection boxes are sometimes HUGE. Often the dialog box itself is way to large or mis-shapen. Attached is an example. The dialog box is way to long vertically. Check boxes are missing text. The tabs at the top are stretched across the whole box. Never seen anything like this before.

In addition when I try to download software, whether from IE, FIREFOX, MSN, etc. After clicking on a link a dialog flashes on the screen and goes away.

Thanks in advance.
