Hi dacr8tiv1...

Unfortunately, this is caused by a nastly piece of malware called a RootKit (apropros) and should only be dealt with by malware specialists.

You can get rid of it with the help of the Malware Folks. Post in Malware from the link I've provided below and put RootKit infection in the title of your post...they are very interested in these infections right now and that will attract their attention.

Do Not use RootKit removal tools without the supervision of someone who is experienced with them...they can cause a lot of problems if not used properly.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the Start Here...then post a HiJackThis log in THAT Forum as I described above.
