Ad-aware; a free check from McAfee on their site; and installing SP2.

I found the problem, i rang up my service providor and found out that it was a virus which after you reformat and connect to the internet on a high speed connection it automatically loads itself onto your system, I cant believe it for the first time in my life i have rang BT and got a decent advisor , BTW i just reformatted and put on a firewall before i connected to the internet, i reccomend sygate firewall it is free and it is fab

yeah, when you do a fresh install of windows, it's a good idea to boot-up in safe-mode w/internet.

then make shure all spyware is in place, anti-virus, then go to microsoft and do all critical updates before going on the net in normal boot.

i'v allway's knew this was important...
