Could relate to a rootkit?

Try a scan with TDSSKiller.

I tried the TDSSKiller and it seems to have worked. I say "seems" because the problem occurred periodically and I don't know what triggered it.

TDSSKiller found Rootkit.Win32.TDSS.tdl4 and removed it. The problem hasn't occurred since the rootkit was removed and that was about three days ago. Prior to that, the problem occurred two or three times a day.

I believe the problem is solved and I really appreciate your help. I don't know what I would have done witout it.
