Check what your homepage is set to.

I had this once and it was a virus that reset my home page to something rather naughty.

Your registry has been changed download this software and it takes 5 min to download and 10-15 min to check for problems and at end you can deleate the spyware in it and purge them i ran another scan today

Computer hangover. Sometimes you shut down and the next day it's all right as rain! I've got Spybot and run checks sporadically - but I reckon there are other things that cause glitches - and I'm not technical, but I think it might be better after a few hours shutdown.

This is a known problem with vista and some versions of flash reader.
If you uninstall whatever version of flash reader you have and reinstall the latest version it should clear it
#23
Did any of the suggestions fix the problem?
