    Chances are it is either spyware or certain auto updates active.
    Read the article on Adware and spyware under our Articles & Tutorials and do what is recommended.
    Also do a virus check with an update anti virus scanner.
    Also make sure you are not check email every minute, have real player shut down and any other non essental program shut off (Instant Messengers etc)
    Just have security related programs running in the backgroud.
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.
