Virus? Start it up in Safe Mode and run an anti-virus...or at least try to.

Yup, it definitely sounds like you have a virus/trojan.

If you don't have them already, download and run these:

Ad-Aware 2007 Free

Spybot S&D

Yes, it definitely looks like what was happening to me last night, a trojan. Restart a hit F8 constantly just before the Windows logo appears to get into safe mode.
