You've somehow managed to install a peice of rogue software that is
itself spyware.

http://spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm


Removal procedures here should help:

http://www.pchell.com/support/smitfraud.shtml

To find and/or deal with issues caused by any sort of "adware"
and/or "spyware," such as Gator, Comet Cursors, Xupiter, Bonzai Buddy,
or KaZaA, and their remnants, that you've deliberately (but without
understanding the consequences) installed, two products that are quite
effective (at finding and removing this type of scumware) are Ad-Aware
SE from www.lavasoft.de and SpyBot Search & Destroy from
www.safer-networking.org/. Both have free versions. It's even possible
to use SpyBot Search & Destroy to "immunize" your system against most
future intrusions.

Additionally, manual removal instructions for the most common
varieties of scumware are available here:

Re: pop-ups
Please don't be frustrated.
Your PC may have spy in it.
I suggest you install the software AVG-anti-spyware
