    I believe your problem is spywares.

    Please install spybot search and destroy.

    Spybot - Search & Destroy (often Spybot-S&D) is a popular malware,

    spyware and adware removal program, which is free.

    http://www.safer-networking.org/

    Spybot-S&D can fix problems with system internals (Registry),

    Winsock LSPs, ActiveX objects, browser hijackers and BHOs,

    and can to some extent protect a user's privacy by deleting

    usage tracks like tracking cookies.

    Spybot also includes an "Immunize" feature to block the

    installation of spyware before it occurs

    e.g. by modifying the hosts file.

    Another tool included in Spybot is a file shredder,

    for the secure deletion of files.

    Spybot is not intended to replace anti-virus programs,

    but it does detect some common trojans.

    Spybot-S&D also recently added an anti-rootkit function.

    The TeaTimer module can be optionally enabled,

    providing a level of active, real-time protection

    from undesirable registry changes and the like.

    Some programs ship with attached spyware

    or adware and refuse to run when the undesired co-programs are removed;

    newer versions of Spybot replace the spyware binaries with inert dummies

    (designed to fool programs which require the spyware's presence).

    In order to efficiently detect recently created programs,

    detection updates are released weekly along with other

    improvements such as added languages and better heuristics algorithms.

    These updates are downloaded from within the software from a variety of

    mirrors and are then automatically installed.
