Are you using IE? That might explain how they got there in the first place. IE is a big NoNo.

If you want complete security of course; you could get MSN Explorer, it will cost you but you get loads of advantageous features including Encarta, Picture It Studio, loads of E-mail Space, Pop Client and the only Browser with no Bugs.
