This has to do with spyware that is installed on your machine First check to see if there are any unwanted programs installed on your pc Go to the control panel and then add/remove programs After that you can download a free program called Ad-Aware 6.0 it can be downloaded at www.lavasoftusa.com You need to run this program so it scans your entire pc for spyware or adware that is causing this problem You also should run a virus scan on your pc just to be safe.
