First I would advise you to goto the link in my sig "name" spybot search and destroy. Download, Install, Update, and run a scan with spybot and ad-aware, and spysweeper. After doing that download hijackthis extract it to a folder "C:\hjt\" and then execute the file and run a scan (dpn't fix anything) then post back results here in the "hijackthis" forum.

Assuming that you are using either Win 2000 or XP go to the TrendMicro website for an online virus scan. Let it fix what it finds. Then repeat the process with the other two scans making sure to update them before you use them (follow their directions on their websites)

If you are using XP shut off system restore before doing the scans.

Panda Activescan (IE only)

Trend Micro antivirus and malware scan:

Etrust Anti-virus web scanner

Then install, setup, update and use the Microsoft Anti-Malware Beta

Let us know what happens.
