Looks like a possible spyware problem to me. There are numerous posts on how to deal with spyware, but as a brief summary.

1.) Download, install and run Adaware, Spybot S & D, and/or any other good spyware removal tool.
2.) Scan for virus.
3.) Be sure you have the latest security updates for Windows (Windows Update)

Hope this helps,
