Hey alan,

It sounds like you have a virus. You could run a free anti-virus tool here.

After runnin AVG, 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.



good luck!

admin,

I ran Spybot S & D and Adaware, after I rebooted, the problem was Solved!!! NoAdware is a very good software, I recommend it very much - This program only SEARCHES FREE for Parasites, to remove them you have to REGISTER. If anybody want's it just give his e-mail so i will send it to him, beacuse it's not in the website from where I downloaded it!! Hope this helps!
