I do not use Internet Explorer because it always seems to get infected or messed up so I have been using Firefox for a long time. Well this weekend I started getting pop-up ads on Firefox that came from Internet Explorer. I then go to Internet Explorer and open it up and it starts running like mad. It goes to "about blank" then a new tab opens up http//:400 error and cycles over and over again creating new tabs I lost count at 42. I try to close out the page and a new window pops up I had up to 11 of these windows before finally getting some to close, this even happened while my computer was no longer connected to the internet.

I have an eMachine with windows XP home on it. I am not technically savvy enough to feel comfortable trying to fix this myself and since I dont even know where to start I am asking for help. PLEASE!!!!
