I would strongly recommend checking your system for viruses To do so, please use this free on-line scanner: http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_frame.asp Then the next process would be to install a firewall :

I would like to recommend you a free firewall called ZoneAlarm Here's a direct link to ZoneAlarm download: http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/free/1012_zl/zlsSetup_50_590_015.exe Try this process, goodluck
