Sounds like you've been invaded. You need to download, install and run Adaware and Spybot. Run them in safe mode. I wouldn't be surprised if they found quite a few bad files and programs on your system.

Also look to Google for the same thing, MS with its last update installed WGA it checks your computer to see if installed MS software is legal. If it thinks it's not you get pop up's telling you that your software maybe counterfeit. There are ways to disable it.
