    You have an infected machine.

    Do you have antivirus installed? It doesn't sounds like anything too malicious, just annoying. Try SpyBot if you don't have any antivirus installed.

    Spybot - Search & Destroy - Free download and software reviews - CNET Download.com

    And sometimes it's something you can just uninstall. Go to Add/Remove programs and scroll down the list of your applications and see if you can spot anything that might obviously be a third party plugin.

    Feel free to post screenshots of the list and I'll be happy to point out anything malicious.

    Hope that helps.
    Worry is a misuse of the imagination.
