I experienced that once. Turned out to be some sort of virus or worm that I had to get rid of. Try updating your anti-virus software and then scanning your PC.

Spybot identifies one as Smitfraud_c (not sure about spelling) they have a complicated process for removing it:frown:
Mine was so bad that i wiped the drive and had to reload windows. But then I'm not very good at software.:redface:
