I am using Windows XP and Internet Explorer version 8.0.6001.18702. When I first navigate off my home page, a new window pops up for another website selling services. I can close that window. After that, at seemingly random times, new windows or tabs will open redirecting me to other websites. The new websites seem to have been chosen from previous search topics in Google or Yahoo. While I can close them, the nuisance nonetheless remains and limits my ability to conduct business.
There are two virus scanners on the computer: MalwareBytes (which I put on and run independently) and Trend Micro (which runs automatically through network settings - I do have Administrative rights). Neither seem to detect anything.
I would be very grateful for your assistance in removing this annoyance.
