    Hi Togerths, welcome to Wilders.

    Can you please follow the comprehensive steps found in General Cleaning.

    If these steps do not resolve your situation, you will need to download and run “Hijack This” found here and post your log at one of the forums found at A-SAP. The two bigger forums for HijackThis log processing, (meaning they process more log threads each day than most others) are: SpywareInfo.com and CastleCops.com. Be sure to read their posting policy in the links at their log review forum sections prior to posting.

    The steps mentioned in General Cleaning use software that ought to be part of your security, as an absolute minimum.

    Once your system is clean, you may want to take a look here for further discussion on security and how to make your system that much stronger and here for more.

    Hope this helps...

    Let us know how you go.

    Cheers :D

    Sounds like you need a firewall to start, do you have one?
    I can recommend a firewall which will be helpful to you. One of its feature is Banned Sites List. You can enter the IP address of that computer into Banned Sites List. That computer will be blocked.
    :p
    You can download it from http://www.armor2net.com
