Welcome to Pro-Networks KimGregory!
First off, what are you using in the line of Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware software? Many of us at Pro will recommend you try either NOD32
for anti-virus and Spybot: Search and Destroy
to keep spyware off.
I'd recommend you download and run Ad-Aware and Spybot in safe-mode first, as that will usually clear up most of these problems. Assuming you're running Windows XP, you'll probably want to download the Winsock Fix
, because some spyware ties itself into your system such that when you remove it, it disables the internet connection. In that case, you'll be glad you had the Winsock Fix already downloaded in order to remedy that problem (of course, it may not be needed).
After running the spyware scans, you may want to run a full virus scan just to be sure you've gotten all the dirt out of the system.
Hopefully that will fix your problem, but if not we're here to help you further
