Yes it's the result of a trojan. There is a post here that might be of use. Basically you may be able to remove it with something like MalwareBytes. Unfortunately if the problem returns or you are unable to run MalwareBytes then there could be an underlying rootkit in which case you'll need something like rootrepeal. Did you have any anti-virus software installed before this happened?

Yes, I have Symantec Endpoint before the problem. I'll try the MalwareBytes. –  Nour Sabouny Sep 26 '11 at 16:50
