then you might consider doing a check for spyware or viruses.

run hijackthis : http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html
then run the log it produces through the analyzer here: http://www.hijackthis.de
at the bottom of the analysis there is an option to save it.  so save it, and then post a link to the saved analysis here.
hijackthis will give us a more complete idea of what you have running on your computer

It sounds like a trojan, download Ewido,http://www.ewido.net/en/
, install,  open ewido, check for updates, restart computer, press F8 before windows logo appears, select safe mode, open Ewido, run scan, if it finds anything it calls serious disable system restore, and run it again.http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;%5BLN%5D;310405
