It sounds like you have a bug or some sort of spyware. I had a same problem, but my brother fixed for me . I saw he worked on my computer and it's quite complicated. You have to know what is the source and delete it. My computer using XP Window and it's fine now.

Medstudents you could also try booting up your computer in safe mode and running a decent anti-spyware and antivirus scan from there. Sometimes the malware is well hidden and the programs are unable to notice the problem until a crash occurs. Maria is correct in a situation like this. Removal of some spyware and viruses, especially those found in a safemode scan can be very difficult. Make sure to run searches in anti-virus/anti-spyware databases for appropriate removal procedure.

hey theprogamer..i know there is written boot scan when ever i open my anti-virus..okkk..so it scans in safe mode..right..ok i'll give it a try..and tell you..i never thought malwares can be so smart..they get undetected by many anti-viruses..goshhh..can't there be a perfect anti-virus...sometimes i think they delibrately leave a loop hole in anti-virus programming so that people may not stop purchasing their LATEST/NEW RELEASES..i hope i am not over saying..!!well thank you.
