check your PC for spyware...s/w does things like that.

the computer I use uses McAfee Internet Security and updates periodically. I've ran it and it says nothing. Do you recommend something else...I believe in the past on my own computer I used spybot. Is that still around

Spybot is still around, but Malwarebytes is a better option. You could also check under Control Panel/Internet Options - click on the 'security' tab and click the 'default level' button.

Yes Malwarebytes is good and you can also use spybot S&D...it has been good through the years.
Two free fully working trials to try are:
1- Trojan Remover
2- Hitman Pro
Run them till they run clean and then use their OWN UNINSTALLERS in all programs to uninstall them...NOT add/remove or programs & Featutres.

I downloaded the new beta from spybot and guess what? My computer will not allow me to run it. It says that it isn't a valid Win32 application then when I try something else I get that darn message that my current security seeings do not... what the heck is going on? :(

So now I download malwarebytes and guess what... I get "windows cannot access specified
device, path, or file. You may not have the approprioate permission to access the item." I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium btw if that matters.
