Default CiD ads...still

I've been having this problem since I re-installed XP after installing Vista which I hated...anyways...I get these ad popups from internet explorer even tho I use FireFox and its usually CiD ads or something. It's always for something stupid..and sometimes I get thos "adultfriendfinder" ads which r fucking annoying...I get one ad every time I go to a different server on counter-strike...which is weird and I have no idea what the correlation is between those 2 events...I have run spyware ad-aware and virus scans and deleted whatever I could and to no avail
