I think a lot more information will be needed before anybody comes up with an answer here :-

What security i.e. Anti Virus, Firewall & Anti Spyware are you using ?

What type of download, direct from net or via P2P like Kazaa ?

additional info..

AVG Anti Virus
No Fire wall
Spybot

I try to avoid P2P, but it makes little difference.

Thanks for any help

I'd try this useful tool first click here the Micro World Anti Virus toolkit, scans for:- illegal dialers, illegal sniffers and tools like spyware, adware, keylogger etc. If that doesn't help try click here and post a Hijack this log for one of the experts to sort through.
