    thats spyware for sure, go to http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html and download adaware and run a FULL SYSTEM SCAN make sure you change that from smart scan or whatever its called so it can pick up everything and also update it before running it

    forget adaware and use spy-bot, it will find it also ... With the way ad-aware gave into whenU, I am weary about whether they would even find the prob you are having ...
     
  5. try add/remove and then adaware and spybot scan

    We dont know that for sure, and adware is still very handy for picking up the dust that spybot leaves behind
