    This issue can occur if your computer is infected with a SubSeven Trojan virus.

    If you dont already have an anti virus. This is free.

    You have a couple problems:

    1) improper security installed on your computer

    2) improper security awareness

    3) you've downloaded and installed a trojan

    To take care of 1 and 3 you would want to invest in a proper security suite (antivirus, firewall, antispyware, etc) from a RELIABLE vendor (McAfee or Norton) and ensure the program is properly configured and kept completely up to date. The reboot once completely updated and perform a complete scan.

    Hopefully this will remove the malware if not you will have to have a professional assist you with manual removal.

    As for problem #2. If you are going to be foolhardy and download crap off the internet (especially without proper protection) then you are just asking for this kind of trouble. You will probably find many other bits of malware on your computer when you get that security suite installed.

    Good Luck
