Welcome to Wilders!!!
From the sound of things, there is a good possibility that you have been hijacked and need to post a HJT log. You may also want to try the steps in general cleaning (http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=50662).
You may want to try also a trusted spyware removal program (I recommend having them both as one may catch what the other may not, since they update at different times):
Spybot Search&Destroy (http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?lang=en&page=download)
Before scanning with either Ad-Aware or Spybot S&D, remember to bring them up-to-date first.
I am afraid we no longer allow the posting of unsolicited HijackThis logs as per our Posting Policy stated in this Announcement (http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=42148). However, you will find links in the Announcement Post to several other sites that still do provide HijackThis log analysis service.
Some of the bigger forums for HijackThis log processing, (meaning they process more log threads each day than many others) are: CastleCops.com (http://castlecops.com/forums.html), Net-Integration.net (http://forums.net-integration.net/index.php?), TomCoyote.org (http://forums.tomcoyote.org), and SpywareInfo.com (http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/index.php).
Whichever site you decide to go to, please be sure and follow their posting policy before you post your HijackThis log.
Some tips and links that will help you stay safe on-line can be found HERE (http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=27971).
To help keep your system clean, these are also freeware programs that we recommend:
SpywareBlaster (http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html) - will protect you from all spy/foistware in it's database by blocking installation of their ActiveX objects.
SpywareGuard (http://www.wilderssecurity.net/spywareguard.html) - provides a degree of real-time protection against spyware that is a great addition to SpywareBlaster's protection method.
IE-Spyad (http://www.staff.uiuc.edu/~ehowes/resource.htm) - will put a list of bad domains and sites into the Restricted Site Zone of your IE Browser. This will help protect IE and prevent those drive-by downloads, browser hijacking, ActiveX, Java, popups, cookies, etc, from compromising your computer while you surf.
Let us know how you do...
EDIT: I have also moved your thread to a more appropiate forum where it can get better attention.
