Have you got Ad-aware click here and Spybot Search and destroy from click here if you haven't got these you should install them.

This from the MIcro$oft Knowledgebase:

Typically, the Trickler program is installed automatically by the Gator OfferCompanion program; or, the Trickler program may be installed by Roger Wilco (voice-to-game integration software). The purpose of Trickler is to gather information about the Web sites that you visit. Trickler provides aggregate statistics to third-party vendors about users, traffic patterns, and related Web site information.

Trickler is also called Fsg-ag.exe (which is installed with AudioGalaxy) or other names that contain "fsg" or "trickler".
