Welcome Sam <_<

First thing I suspect is a virus. Do you have anti-virus software installed on your computer? Try a free online virus scan, Click Here

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

<_< Sounds like you saved your log to the help folder? You can search your computer for hijackthis.log if necessary. Can you copy and paste a log?

Yes, if the virus scan identifies it as a virus, remove it. It could be the file that installs the virus.

Try rebooting to safemode. Restart your computer, and keep tapping the F8 key while starting.
