    There are alot of possibilities. Do you have an anti-virus program? Do you keep it up to date and scan often? Do you check for spyware often?

    Best thing to do is reinstall, might as well get XP since you're reinstalling anyway.

    Learn from the mistakes of others, you won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.
