Time for a spyware check I think.

Download, install and run the above.

That sounds like a trojan or virus, perhaps they are trying to dial an 0900 number? expensive! get them Out!

boot into safe mode and run virus checker and spyware progs from there.

Also switch off system restore and run antivirus progs, switch restore back on and create restore point on completion.

do i have to do it in safe mode then?
