messages on login

i have been getting a window when i log into my isp pertaining to "login.passport.com" to 'connect' to web. I'm already on web and it won't
clear till i type CANCEL. When i click on internet explorer i get a similier window essentially asking to 'connect' but with a different request"companion.yahoo.com". Same thing as other window. It won't clear till i click cancel.
Anybody have any ideas whats going on,and how do i get rid of this annoyence. This started when i started getting updates from Microsoft, my browser,yahoo, and anti-virus updates. Hoping that i just have to change some setting somewhere.
Thanks

I suspect spyware. Run Ad Aware to see if it cleans up anything.

it's your msn net passport.

make sure it says passport, not pasport. do you use hotmail? have you scanned for trojans lately?
