    You have some variant of the Smitfraud trojan and you need to clean up
    your machine.

    Do the preparatory steps here:

    Then do the specific steps here:

    When all else fails, run HijackThis and post your log in one of the
    specialty forums listed at the link above (not here, please).

    Standard caveat: If the procedures look too complex - and there is no
    shame in admitting this isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a
    professional computer repair shop (not your local version of
    BigStoreUSA). Please be aware that not all local shops are skilled at
    removing malware and even if they are, your computer may be so infested
    that Windows will need to be clean-installed. Have all your data backed
    up before you take the machine into a shop.
