Check your PC for viruses and Spyware.

For the latter : Try Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware (Beta). Download, Run and post a report in that thread with what pests it founded.

Good Luck,

Cetin Thanks for your input.I did download and install microsoft antispyware but it could not perform a scan on my system.Since it is a beta product it didnt offer me much support.However,I will approach this problem from the standpoint of possible malware/spyware intrusion and try other applications for this purpose.Thanks again for your assistance

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
