Greetings chirocourageous,
Sounds like you have a rootkit infection...one of the family of Win32/tater worms likes to steal logon and password data for various online games that you play. We can do nothing about it here, although you can rRead This Pinned Topic thoroughly and do what it recommends.

Post the requested log data and label your thread "attn: 1972vet" and I'll take a look for you. Thanks!
