Sounds like a virus. You might have to erase your hard drive and reinstall windows. If you have a boot disk that came with your computer, it will reinstall the entire system as it was when you bought it. You will need to save any files you want to keep first on a separate drive or burn to CD before you do it though.

If you have a card reader on your computer, insert the card, take note of the drive letter windows gives your card, then go to:
Start > Run > type "cmd" without the quotes, hit enter.
When the command window comes up, type "chkdsk y: /f" without quotes, and replace 'y' with your card's drive letter.
