Is it a virus?

  Newuser3605 13:27 03 Aug 2004

When I click on send in hotmail or delete in tiscali the computer reverts to my windows start page although still connected to the Internet. The functions clicked on have no been carried out.
Is this a new virus?
Many thanks.

I am typing this at the library.

Many thanks for help.
I tried the suggestion about Housecall and it found a trojan called Banker. D but said it was uncleanable.
I am not sure what to do next but at least I know what is wrong.
Thanks again.

Many thanks to stalion.
I tried the others but it seemed it was not called Banker in the files.
The mwti site detected and removed it.
I am very grateful to all those who tried to help and hope rabbit rabbit reads this note.
