    welcome to T.S.G. slowpokeme.

    www.moosoft.com
    sounds like you have a trojan.
    go to the above site and download "the cleaner" click the update button and download the latest sig files.....then options/scanning and make sute "scan inside compressed folders" and "scan for hidden executables" are both checked.
    then hit "scan" and let the program do its job.

    then take a look at the links that jm100dm posted.
    good luck;)

    Download and install a personal firewall like ZoneAlarm or Sygate. These programs will tell you when something unauthorized by you is trying to connect to the Internet.

    Glad to have helped. You still need to make sure that any Trojans or viri are removed. Follow the others instructions to do this. If you stop at this point and have a Trojan your problems will continue and probably get worst.

    Your firewall will keep others out. Learn what you can about it so you have a good understanding of what it does. It should always run while on the net to protect you. Running a test will let you know where you stand as to further invasions

    Spybot will find things after they are are on your computer, it is not a firewall. Great for removing malware.

    Keep your antivirus program up to date. Every few weeks you should update the definitions and run it. Ask if you need help.

    keep us posted please.
