    Hi, let us have some Pc specifications.
    Check and post
    TSG System Information Utility - found here.
    http://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe

    Download Security Check by screen317 from.
    http://screen317.spywareinfoforum.org/
    Or
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/securitycheck/

    Save it to your Desktop.
    Double click the install icon.
    If using Vista - Win 7 - right click the install icon and select "Run as Administrator"
    A command Prompt window will open.
    Let it scan the Pc - press any key when asked.
    It should now open in Notepad.
    Copy and Paste the result of the scan in the reply box below.

    The saved log will be called checkup.txt.

    You have an out of date Pc and are open to all manner of infections.
    Service Pack 2 Out of date
    You need to update SP 2 to SP 3 as soon as possible.
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help/learn-how-to-install-windows-xp-service-pack-3-sp3

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=24

    Internet Explorer 6 Out of date
    Install the Service pack 3 first and we can go from there.

    It is also showing that you have both avast! Free Antivirus and Ad-Aware Antivirus installed.
    If that is the case - one needs to be uinstalled.
