A buffer overflow is an anomalous condition where a process attempts to store data beyond the boundaries of a fixed length buffer. The result is that the extra data overwrites adjacent memory locations. The overwritten data may include other buffers, variables and program flow data.

this is sometimes caused by viruses.my advice run a virus,and spyware scan.then try the "follow these steps first" link in my sig
