Run Anti-Spyware and Adware scans.

Spybot Search and Destroy would work the best, along with Ad-Aware and maybe even AVG Anti-Virus for extra security

I would recommend you try Spybot Search and Destroy. It is very easy to use and detects what a lot of other scanners miss.

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

Be sure you update it before you use it. Hopefully it fixes your problem.

Also, a screen shot would help, I'm just going off of my past experiences with problems like this.

Yep, that would be adware. Spybot should take care if it.

I dont recomend anyone to use IE.

If you want faster service, and a more protective internet broweser use something like Firefox or Safari. youll have a much less chance of this happening. as for spyware, stick with spybot for your main antispyware but download a couple others as every antispyware finds different spywares

Although, if you download more than one spyware/adware program DO NOT HAVE MORE THAN ONE RUNNING AT ONCE! This can i believe do damage to your computer (not really sure how but i've heard it before) and it also will slow it down a lot.
