    Hiya and welcome

    Which version of DirectX do you have:

    Go to Run and type DXDIAG
    In the first tab will be the evrsion.

    Also, lets try a 'spring clean'

    Go to Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, delete offline content. Also, clear the History.

    Content tab, under AutoComplete, clear Forms and Passwords.

    Advanced tab, under Browsing, look for Enable Insta on Demand. Untick.
    Under Security, look for Empty Tempory Internet... Tick.
    Apply and OK

    Go to Run and type MSINFO32
    On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

    Download Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de

    After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
    Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds.

    That ought to get rid of most of your spyware.

    When you've done all that, go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

    Reboot in between running spybot & Hijackthis

    Regards

    eddie
