Do you visit those sites listed under bin as shortcuts? As mitchelle65 said, have u checked your system for malware?

If no, then pls do the following:

Please download and run this tool.

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here

Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Full Scan", then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart. (See Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.
Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.

I think we need to go back to when Windows 7 was first installed. I think the PC had XP before.
jhmac77, Can you outline what you did to install Win 7 and where did your installation disc come from?

Jhmac,

warning   Warning
There is absolutely no need for the yelling with the exclamation remarks if you wish to remain as a member.



When you installed over XP, was it a clean install? (formated, then installed Windows 7)

If not, then sometimes that could cause strange issues like the one you are experiencing.
