It looks like you have contracted spyware. Have a look at this information (http://sarc.com/avcenter/venc/data/adware.ntsearch.html) on Symantec's website. Adaware and/or Spybot may also be able to remove it.

that sounds like one of the earlier adware/spware.....hotlinks????. adaware/spybot should remove it.
