Have you tried a scan with whatever antivirus program you use? You may need to download updates for it on another computer (the one you are using now?) and then copy them over to the sick machine. There are also a number of offline tools you can use to scan your computer - Malwarebytes or Kaspersky Rescue Disk for example.

Thanks, i am busy running Malware bytes, will wait to see what that brings up. I have run the standard Mcafee which is useless program. They should not be allowed to sell their product.

I've been saying that all along.
You would be much better off with Avast Free:

After running Malwarebytes run these 2 free 30 day fully working trials:
1- Trojan Remover

2- Hitman Pro

Fix all they find.

If they don't fix the problem there are more free tools that will, let us know
