    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Have you checked your system for viruses etc?

    Go HERE and follow the instructions in the order they are given.

    Post a fresh HJT log into this thread, only after doing the above.

    If it turns out not to be virus related, we`ll have to look at other possible causes.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    I`d still like you to post a HJT log, just so I can see if your system is really clean.

    Regards Howard :)
