Default Possibly Being Hacked

Alright I have a condition with my computer which is very upsetting and I think iam being hacked

This problem started about 2 weeks ago and usually go's of every few minutes.

My task bar becomes cluttered and the IE bars keep adding up till there is about 56 links and then I have to close the group.

Hopfully you understand my problem!

There is one thing though, When all the links where cluttered up I copied and pasted the URL in the address BAR is it:

http://62.4.84.53/trafc/redir.php?cm...m&lid=security

Alright IMO u have not been hacked sounds to me like spyware, possibly a virus though. To remove just run some anti virus and spyware scans.

Yeah, run spyware, adaware, malware, virus, etc. scans... flush those things out! ad aware is good, spybot is good, microsoft antispyware, pc cillin antivirus, and hijackthis are all good programs...

By any chance is that URL u posted set as your homepage, so, everytime you are starting your browser it is going to the page and executing the script for the popups?
