Take it easy, some people aren't around when you are so they can't respond straight away - almost everyone here is a volunteer - they give their time when they can!
I have a couple of comments:1. Sites for online virus scans:
Here are some links to free
online Anti-Virus scans. They do take some time to load and run and in some cases you can only use Internet Explorer, with ActiveX enabled, to access them but they are an excellent support for your existing anti-virus program.Trend Micro
online scan "housecall" - http://housecall.antivirus.com/ Panda
Active Scan online - http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
Internet Explorer only. Requires email address. Requires Active-X components to be installed. Approx 12MB download.BitDefender
online scan - http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php
Internet Explorer only. Must agree to a EULA. Need to allow installation of an Active X component.Some of the options are not clearly explained.McAfee

Your problem is more likely due to spyware which is not removed by anti-virus programs because -er- they are not viruses. As a first step do the following, if that does not work there are other steps which can be taken.
Do you have any anti-spyware
installed? If not download and update all
of the following:Reboot your computer in Safe Mode
and run the anti-virus scan and anti-spyware scans there.
If you are not sure how to boot in Safe Mode there is a tutorial here: Safe Mode
See if that helps
