Start with at thorough scan for malware.

Run these programs to check for spyware/malware. After installing
update them, then boot into safe mode and run them. You should update
and run them weekly.

If you’re still having problems after running these then run HijackThis
and post the log to one of the specialty forums, _NOT_ this one.

After your system is clean use these programs to help keep it clean:

For viruses, start with Trend Micro’s Sysclean and McAfee’s Stinger.
Download them and the Sysclean signature file. Delete the temporary
internet files, turn off system restore, boot into safe mode and run
them. Boot back into normal mode and run a full AV scan with your
normal AV program. Then turn system restore back on.

If you have spelt this correctly I would suggest you do a thorough
scan for Malware/Trojans and Virus's with the following tools and order

1. CWShreader
2. AD-Aware
3.Spybot Search & Destroy
4. Sysclean

Make sure all are updated before scanning your system and run them from
safe mode.
