I'd run adaware and spybot, they'll more than likely clean most/all of them up.

I agree. If all else fails, try running Hijackthis (http://www.merijn.org/) and copy the log file to this forum. There are those who can read what may be causing your problems. I'm attempting to learn some of these tricks myself, so i'll try to help as much as i can.
