    There is no "fix" only a thorough cleaning. Start with Disk cleanup.
    Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup
    Deleting Cookies on and off-line Temporary Internet files
    After a cleanup, do a Defrag under System Tools. Then go to:
    Start>Run>type MSCONFIG and press Enter.
    Click the Startup tab and uncheck/disable everything except your
    anti-virus app, if Norton, it will start with NAV
    Click Apply and Close. Reboot.

    you could try running antivirus and anti-spyware programmes then try disk
    cleanup and defragging the hard drive to start off with.

    hope that helps

    Make certain your antivirus software is completely up to date with the
    virus definitions not less than a week old and do a complete virus
    scan of your computer. Then get a second opinion by doing a free
    virus scan at one of the following online scanning sites:

    Next check for and remove any spyware from your computer by using MVP
