    If it didn't always do this, you probably have unwanted stuff running in the background. Run msconfig and shut off the unnecessary crap. Aslo check for spyware/adware. I like to use Ad-Aware and Spybot. After you download the updates for Spybot, make sure you imunize (it helps prevent future infections).
