Default Help With Spyware Please!

Ok, I was surfing the web and I was redirected to a pornographic site. I clicked off the site, but it must have implemented somesort of spyware/virus into my computer, because every couple of minutes my internet screen redirects back to the site, without my doing. Is there any way that I can find out what exactly is causing this???

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!

Thank you

get spybot and adaware update there definitions and run a sweep with both, this fixes 99% of spyware problems.
