    This is most likely related to a malware infection, some of which may have been already cleaned by your system.

    I’d suggest you run a complete system scan using http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

    Also, if you don’t have a full featured anti-virus/spyware/malware security program running on your computer I suggest using Microsoft Security Essentials.

    I can also do a remote service call to inspect and clean your system for a fee. E-mail me at mark@askageek.com if you’re interested.
