Sounds like some spyware may have snuck (?) into your PC - If you don't have it already, I would recommend you installing a spyware detecting program such as Ad-Aware from
http://www.lavasoft.nu/ or
http://www.lavasoftusa.com/

Install and run it, see how many suspect components it finds..... The most I have seen is 140 (though that was mostly cookies)

Hope this helps,

Stuart

Go to the "Task Scheduler", and modify their settings.
