This is a problem It's a virus that steals passwords

To solve thisuse the Process Monitor from AATools you will see whether any foreign programs are running on your computer If you find some unwanted program you can take it off it by clicking the 'Terminate Process' button on the Toolbar Using the AATools Network Monitor you can see what ports are in use on your local PC for connection with remote systems (LAN/Internet) On Windows NT/2000/XP the Network Monitor will show you the services that are active on the ports and map the ports to their applications If you register port probes directed against ports that are normally not used, it is possible that someone is trying to connect to a Trojan inside your network Using the registry cleaner (Startup section) from AATools you will see the list of programs that are registered under Run, RunOnce, RunOnceEx and RunService registry keys so you can find out what programs are started behind your back You should check these programs to see if they are goods ones but not Trojans programs.
