    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is probably infected with one of these viruses.

    Sasser Worm
    W32.HLLW.Lovgate.C@mm
    Mydoom
    W32.Nimos.Worm

    Make sure your Windows is fully patched with at least sp1, but preferably sp2.

    You can download the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool from HERE

    Run a full system scan with your antivirus programme.

    Also go HERE and HERE and follow all the instructions exactly.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
