So I keep getting this thing that's trying to download something on my computer. There are multiple instances of mshta.exe that show up on task manager, and after having a look with Process Explorer, the same url that's trying to connect to my computer is in the command line of these mshta.exe's. Also, when using Mozilla Firefox, it can't connect to sites like this and won't even open. I also get random tabs opening in Firefox.
Any help?

Note: I don't regularly use IE6, I used it this time because Mozilla wasn't working.

Also, the url is hxxp://www.funnypinguinshow.com/sdad.php?kxasdasddkhjk= and after updated definitions and scans with SAS, MBAM, and NOD32, it still couldn't find the problem.
