You are infected with spyware. Here are some programs that you should download, install, update, and run:

Ad-Aware SE Personal
http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/ - This program will scan your system for spyware, and remove it for you.

Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.3
http://www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html - This is another spyware scanner. It doesn't hurt to have more than one scanner, as some scanners find things that others miss.

SpywareBlaster 3.2
http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/sbdownload.html - This program will prevent most spyware from installing itself onto your browser and computer.

That oughta do it ;) Update the programs every now and again to make sure you are protected from the latest threats. Each program has update functions within them :)

Good luck!

P.S If you need any help with any of these programs, don't hesitate to ask ;)


You may also want to download HijackThis from here and scan and save and post your results in the Security forum for one of the security experts to take a look at and make sure it is clean after running the programs that Paddy mentioned above. You can download HijackThis from here:


Be sure to post the log in the security forum, and make sure you are running the latest version, which is 1.98.2. Good luck!:)
