1: You may have better luck getting "help" if you post the id strings... OR better yet
"Googling" for those id strings... 2: I think you have some spyware/virus/trojan... whatever you want to call it. 3: If it was me I'd consider doing a fresh install if the install has any time on it at all. I'd suggest you do a fresh install. then image the hd with a program like Acronis True Image, or Ghost 8.3, or Ghost Corporate 2005?.. Then when you have a problem like you do now you can restore everything within MINUTES.

4: I'd get an external hd to image the drive
to... One of the BEST on the market being the Apricorn EZ-BUS-DT*-KIT... that just "happens" to come with an OEM verions of Arconis True Image. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...624855?ie=UTF8
Currently you can get the USB version here for only $24.99... which btw is a VERY good price.
Description is for the DTC as in the above review by me , but it's the DT... USB 2.0 model EDIT Jun1, 2006 here is the CORRECT link: http://www.ecost.com/ecost/shop/detail.asp?dpno=294942
