Any beep codes when you boot up?

When did this start?

Was anything added/removed prior to this issue presenting itself?

Do you have a full OS disk?

What OS are you running?

What are you machine specs?

Boot into Safemode with Networking.

FIRST : You need to scan the machine with anti-malware apps.

Ewido
Adware-SE




I trust AVG anti-virus myself... I recommend letting AVG take a crack at cleaning up your machine too.


Next : Search the forum for "Spyware" in the search area.
You will see large posts filled with Anti Spyware/Adware/Malware applications.

I suggest following some of those directions for this.
