Installed any new programs, such as firewalls and anti-viruses?

Also, have you done a virus or spyware scan recently?

Do a virus scan and a spyware scan.

You can use the free version of AVG and Ad-Aware SE.

Hmmm, have you tried AVG? And also, it is possible that I can contact you via AIM or MSN?
