Well first things first. Get some antispyware on ya computer. The difference in safe mode is, that virus and spyware wont actually start, which means they can be removed easier. Whereas in normal mode, they are running in the background, and when you remove them, they can reinstall themselves.

Download http://www.lavasoftusa.com/products/...e_personal.php (Ad-aware) and run it to see if you have spyware, then run a full anti-virus.

Download Hi-jack this http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html and run that, and post the entries.

Do all this in safe mode!
