Something's running in the background, mike1967, check which processes are running by pressing Ctrl, Alt and Delete to bring up the Task Manager, see if you can spot anything unusal, also do the usual Spyware scans with "Adaware" and "Spybot Search and Destroy", do a scan with your Anti-virus software as well.
