    Did you post using the computer-in-question? Your post's headers (Microsoft
    Outlook Express 6.00.2900.2180) tell us that the computer you used to post
    is running outdated & much less-secure versions of Outlook Express, Internet
    Explorer and Windows XP (SP3?).

    On the computer-in-question:

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer?

    Did a Norton or McAfee free-trial come preinstalled on the computer when you
    bought it? (Doesn't matter if you never used or Activated it.)

    When does your current NOD32 subscription expire?

    When (approx. date) did you install NOD32?

    Did you install NOD32 before or after you installed (or attempted to
    install) SP3?

    What anti-virus application was installed before you installed NOD32, was
    your subscription still current, and did you uninstall it before you
    installed NOD32?

    Have you ever done a Repair Install of WinXP for some reason?

    You are seeing the effects of a hijackware infection! See...

    Cleaning a Compromised System
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc700813.aspx

    Back-up any personal data (none of which should be considered 100% trustworthy at this point) then format the HDD & do a clean install of Windows. Please note that a Repair Install (AKA in-place upgrade) will NOT fix this!

    HOW TO do a clean install of WinXP: See http://michaelstevenstech.com/cleanxpinstall.html#steps and/or Method 1 in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978307

    After the clean install, you will have the equivalent of a "new computer" so take care of EVERYTHING on the following page BEFORE otherwise connecting the machine to the internet or a local network (i.e., other computers) AND BEFORE connecting a flash drive, SDCard, or any other external drive to the computer:

    4 steps to help protect your new computer before you go online

    HOW TO get a computer running WinXP SP1(a) or SP2 fully patched (after a clean install)
    http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.windowsxp.general/msg/a066ae41add7dd2b

    Tip: After getting the computer fully-patched, download/install KB971029 manually before connecting any external drive to the computer: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971029

    NB: Any Norton or McAfee free-trial that came preinstalled on the computer when you bought it will be reinstalled (but invalid) when Windows is reinstalled. You MUST uninstall the free-trial AND download/run the appropriate removal tool BEFORE installing any updates, Windows Service Packs or IE upgrades AND BEFORE installing your new anti-virus application (which will require WinXP SP3 to be installed).

    If these procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and independent computer repair shop.

    Wish I'd had better news for you. Good luck!
