Did you download a Screensaver?

As Rawprawn says or possibly bundled with something else that has been downloaded.

If im correct in thinking,you may have a toolbar related to Funweb or something similar to Smiley Central installed on your system or Msn messenger Plus.Try this also click here

If this is indeed the case,you may need a lot more help to rid this from the system as this may have mutiple registry entries and will need manual removal.

Try the above and if no joy, download HJT and save to your desktop.Run the scan and post the log click here DO NOT tinker with the HJT scan results,this is a powerful program and you could render your machine useless if used incorrectly.
Let the experts advise accordingly.
