try this:
press the start button, go to run, type in "msconfig" , select the start tab, uncheck everything except your antivrius (if you have any). by doing this, it turns off all the stuff running in the back ground, including any trojan virus programs or alike.

Do you have anti-virus protection? If not go here: http://free.grisoft.com/doc/1

Do you have spybot and ad-aware? If not go here:http://www.geekstogo.com/

Also do a trojan scan, go get the free program, go here: www.trojanhunter.com

on all these programs, check for updates prior to scanning your computer, this will ensure better results.

Good Luck!
