    We have found that the issue you describe can often be attributed to infection. We know you have already done a virus scan but the infection could be very deep and a regular scan will not detect/fix it.

    So our best advice at this point is for you to go to our Virus & Malware Removal forum and read and follow the UPDATED 7 Steps sticky.

    Then on that forum, after you have done all the steps, post the results with the required information pasted into your post. You'll receive excellent help.

    Good luck.
