    Have you tried rebooting the computer? Do you have a good antivirus/antispyware/firewall?

    Have you tried searching your installed programs to see if you have Auto Click installed, and tried to uninstall it if you have? I don't know if you can check this in Safe mode, but I would try that.

    What about System Restore (not restore configuration)? Can you go back far enough in time before it started happening?

    as i thought

    O23 - Service: VTingWinIe - jinks - C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\svchost.exe - theres your issue

    first got to control panal -> admin tools -> services and look for VTingWinIe, and see if you can stop the service, then in a command window type sc delete "VTingWinIe" - which should delete the service, then go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\VTingWin.dll and see if you can delete it, if not start in safe mode and see if you can delete it.

    I would suggest downloading and installing spybot search and destroy also as this will find loads of and remove any tojans and malware that you might have

    O23 - Service: VTingWinIe - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\svchost.exe (file missing) - its still there

    got to start -> run - type cmd , a command prompt should option type sc stop "VTingWinIe" - and it should tell you it stoped it - or that its not running, then type sc delete "VTingWinIe"

    note: you need to have the "" in the command, dont remove them, i would also suggest running spybot search and destroy in safe mode
