Rosemary

spyware/hijack
It installs a file in the system32 directory that runs in your
processes at startup. Then it throws in 5 registry keys, a registry
value etc, etc.... Anyway

I would recommend downloading, installing and UPDATING
Both Spybot S&D Version 1.3 www.safer-networking.org and Adaware SE
www.lavasoftusa.com

run them one at a time, one normally finds what the other misses.

Also run an on-line Virus Scan @ www.pandasoftware.com/activescan
Adaware reports a probable virus installed.
