That you have a virus or trojan. Please disconnect from the internet and reboot. Then go to Safe Mode without Networking and run your AntiVirus and SpyWare checkers. Remove anything that they find by using the protocols they suggest.

If you do not have AV and AntiSpyWare, go to http://www.grisoft.com to download AVG Free and to http://www.safer-networking.org/index2.html to download Spybot S&D which is also free.

There is a wide variety of free tools available, these are only two suggestions.

Good luck!

And Bit Defender seems to choose when and where to go on the random rampage.
