Its hard to exactly understand what is happening, but I would try booting into safe mode by tapping F8 while starting up the computer, and logging into the Administrator account.

Once you're there, try running your anti-spyware software and see if it rids you of the bad spyware if this is the problem.

Another option is to try System Restore in Accessories in your programs. This can restore your computer back to a day when everything was working correctly, but its a long shot with your problem.

Let us know of your findings

Ok, try this. This is going to take awhile, but it might work. When you hit F8 on startup, select Safe Mode Command Prompt. Once the black screen is present, then Type "chkdsk /r" there is a space between chkdsk and /r just in case you can't tell on the post.

This will check your computer hard drive for errors and hopefully fix them. It might take about an hour, but if you have damaging spyware on your computer, you may just need to get your data backed up and then reload windows on it.
