I'll try to list as much info as possible. I don't know much about computers, but I'm a pretty good learner/listener...
I never use IE, I used Yahoo's browser since buying the computer and then switched over to firefox... My brother recently moved in and he started using IE and I guess it's cookies settings or security settings were basically turned off or at it's lowest.

So far, I've done a scan with lavasoft's free ad-aware and PC Doctor, but both didn't do much and the problems are still the same.

If anyone can help, or lead me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it..
Thanks in advance...
