I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.

Read the pinned post in the HijackThis forum, here
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.

I think you ought to do:
1. Update your Spybot S&D.
2. Download Hijackthis 1.99.1.
3. Restart the computer in Safe mode.
4. Run Hijackthis and fix false problems.
5. Run Spybot S&D and scan computer.

If problem will come back than:
1. Close all open Internet Explorer windows.
2. Make registry backup.
3. Delete the value that was added to the registry (if they exists):

Navigate to following the key:
And In the right pane, delete the values:
"Microsoft Cab Manager" = "c:\exec.exe"
"Windows Security Manager" = "c:\winsecure.exe"
"Windows Security Update" = "%Windir%\security32.exe"

Navigate to following the key:
And In the right pane, delete the values:
"WinTask" = "c:\wintask.exe"
"Userinit" = "%System%\userinit.exe,"

Navigate to following the key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\load
And In the right pane, delete the values:
"Memory Manager" = "%System%\memorymanager.pif"

Navigate to and delete the following subkeys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{77566C2A-2987-44BC-AC81-A02D19EE271B}
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{C0DADD7E-D3F1-430D-B735-39DC6033592C} 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{1BB87441-6B7F-4B60-885C-B7AF9F9AFDE3}

4. Exit the Registry Editor.
5. Delete files (if exists):

6. Restart the computer in Safe mode.
7. Run Spybot S&D and then give to check hijackthis1.99.1 log.
8. Remove entries from the Hosts file:

Click Start > Search.
Click All files and folders.
In the "All or part of the file name" box, type: hosts
Then open this file with Notepad and delete this entries:      www.1-online-coupons.com      www.smartqpon.com      www.jumpondeals.com      www.1-coupon.com      www.ahugedeal.com      www.1st-in-mens-clothing.com      www.discounts-coupons.com      www.shoppersresource.com      www.1-free-coupons.com      www.coupon-coupon.com      www.online-coupons-discounts.com      www.ebates.com      www.247coupon.com      www.couponmountain.com      www.coupon-deals.com      www.coupon-codes.us      www.coupons-coupon-codes.com www.coupons-coupons-codes.com      www.ahugedeal.com      www.findsavings.com      www.xpcoupons.com www.xpbargains.com www.best-cards.com www.voucherfreebies.co.uk      www.ukshops.co.uk www.247ukshopping.com www.somucheasier.co.uk www.uk-online-store.co.uk www.deals-coupons.com www.shopping.net www.eshops.co.uk www.247ukshopping.com www.ukfrenzy.co.uk www.asmartshop.com www.couponmountain.co.uk www.redtagdeals.com www.freecoupons.co.uk www.shop-uk-online.co.uk www.best-online-coupons.com www.rather-be-shopping.com www.clothes-coupons.com www.online-coupons-coupons.com www.momsview.com www.pricezilla.com www.mygo.com www.ultimatecoupons.com www.specialoffers.com www.galacticgalaxy.com www.thewinnersclub.net

hello, just curious Agitarius as to why you would delete the entries from the HOSTS file? wont they just resolve the IP to the local loopback address? Unless the HOSTS file was bloated and slowing traffic down it should add a little more security to malware connection attempts.
