    You don't, it's a virus

    Please go to this site, and download 'Hijack This!'.

    Unzip it, launch Hijack This, then press Scan, and press Save Log

    This will generate a text file that will list all running processes, all applications that are loaded automatically when you start Windows, and more.

    open that file
    Go to Edit | Select all
    Now click Edit | copy to copy it
    Come back to TSG, Right Click and paste its contents to this thread and someone will have a look at it for you
