What about the jumper configuration on the back of your cd and dvd?

You may have a spyware/trojan problem. I did once, and it did the same thing. Reinstall Windows and it will fix it. Also, download FireFox to get rid of dumb spyware and many trojan problems.

Alright forget the jumper configuration for now and go wtih AMD ZEN's idea (not saying that the jumpers mah not be an issue though), i think i had a problem like this once i cant remember how i fixed it or if i did..., but i think that could have been on 98

yeah, i recommend you just use ad aware and spybot to cleanse your pc and then check agian. if not, then you might want to just format your drive and start it all over. thats the way.
