Assuming you are using IE, look in your list of "Addons" and see if there is any item there you don't recognize.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html

Please let us know the results of the scans and whether your problem is solved or not.

I'm sorry I didn't post what I use as a browser. I use IE 6.0.

The addons I see are
{53707962-6F74-2D53-2644-206D7942484F} Publisher is Safer Networking Ltd.

Other then that I think I know what they all are.

I ran Bitfinder and it found nothing.
I also ran F-Secure (an online scanner) and all they found were tracking cookies.

I ran super antispyware and here is the log

I don't know what else to do. thanks for helping me

safer Networking=Spybot Search &Destroy

Did you run Super Antispyware in safe mode? I haven't used the uninstaller listed below, so if you would rather post a Hijack This log, please do.Follow the directions in the link below for posting in the appropriate forum.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

For Unstall.exe, you could try these fixes:

I would also recommend you read the info in the link below concerning blocking the third party cookies that are listed in your log.
