    sounds like it's a trojan, a hacker's program, that was pretty pervasive a year or so ago.

    get spybot and adaware, run them both. one or the other will catch it and get rid of it.

    spybot: http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?lang=en&page=download

    adaware: http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download/

    i recommend running both programs, as they each catch what the other doesn't. also, if you have firedaemon, you'll prolly have other things that need to be cleaned out, like dialers. :)

    good luck.
