If anyone can help please:

when I connect to imdb looking up for something (i.e. a movie title) and then trying to get back to the initial imdb page, two "servedby.advertising.com" linked pages get between the current and the original page (shown when I click on the back arrow button). So, I need three "back" clicks to return to imdb's home page.

Does anyone know how to clean my ie7 from this very annoying adware?

Thank you guys in advance!

P.S. I am running xp sp2 with norton internet security 5 antivirus. Full antivirus scans (updated) cannot find this spyware. So do adaware 6 and spybot.

It would be a good idea to run Super Antispyware in safe mode.

Of course, a sure way to block ads and surf safer is to use Firefox with NoScript extension.
