Sounds like spyware.

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.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = 127.0.0.1
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Windows Key] rpcxsys.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [System manager] SystemMgr.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Update Machine] slpgktmlw.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Windows Key] rpcxsys.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [System manager] SystemMgr.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Update Machine] slpgktmlw.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [System manager] SystemMgr.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Microsoft Update Machine] slpgktmlw.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows Compliant] tafhco.exe

Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?.
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):
C:\WINDOWS\System32\rpcxsys.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\SystemMgr.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\slpgktmlw.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\tafhco.exe[/B

[B]Reboot
your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log in this same topic, and let us know how your system's working. <_<
