just a hunch cos i had a similar problem lately and bazooka helped me get things back to normal, click here download and run ,if it finds a problem it will suggest a way to get rid of it.

Yes as grabster says, I have just done a google on this and it sounds like you have some sort of spyware that ad-aware or spybot s&d will not show up or even if it did they will not remove the problem.

Click on his link it's a great page, helped a lot when I experienced a problem of getting rid of "Purityscan"

good luck
