Try scanning your PC with the free version of Malwarebytes: http://www.malwarebytes.org/ (http://www.malwarebytes.org/)

If that doesn't find anything, hold down the [Ctrl] and [Alt] keys, and press the [Del] key. From the window that appears, click on Task Manager, then on Applications. That will show you what applications are currently active.

Do you know if any other settings are being reset? What is the Make/Model of the router?

Stopzilla isn't too good from my past experiences.

I would seriously suggest AVG or Malwarebytes.

its a D-Link G604T don't think any other settings have reset, I have a bit of paper with all the settings and they seem to be the same

You might have done this, so appoligies is you have done it already...

After setting the username/password, save the configuration. You can do this by clicking on the "Misc" menu within the router admin interface, from there click on "Save and Reboot". After a couple of minuites go back into the interface and check to see if the settings have been saved.

Hope this helps.
