This is part of the Vundo trojan.
Download Highjackthis run it and see if you have the following entry?
O2 - BHO: MSEvents Object - {52B1DFC7-AAFC-4362-B103-868B0683C697} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\gebxw.dll
If you do put a check mark next to it and press fix.
Highjackthis download from this link:

Now download and run Vundofix from this link:
http://vundofix.atribune.org/
the instructions are on this page as well, its simple to use.
Also this Trojan is most likely to get on your pc through a old version of Java, please do a manual update of Java, and remove any older versions from your Add and Remove Programs list. You should have Java6.

Lastly download and run malwarebytes to clean up any thing left on your pc:
