Do you have any spyware or virus programs installed?

If you have not yet, Run Norton in Safe mode to verify no
virus.
Try to get spybot installed to remove any spyware.
Worse case, rather than a reformat, try a repair of Windows.

And an FYI, correct grammar and sentence structure goes a long way when describing a problem. It shows us you're willing to make the effort to express your problem in a lucid and easy to understand manner. One continuous run-on sentence is VERY difficult to read.
