IP change, popups constantly on clean system

Hi,

I have reinstalled windows a few times, this time ONLY visiting windows update to get updates, and already adaware has removed over 250 spyware and I am still constantly getting the same gay porn/search results for blah blah popups. Even sometimes when loading Windows Update from the start menu it redirects to the same porn popup.

I have ran avg antivirus and norton, I have ran Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D, all spyware removed, also using zonealarm yet I'm still getting these popups on a clean system which has only visited Microsoft and here.

I would like to know if it could be IP based, or even my hostname if that is what its called, (WHOIS on my IP)

Is it possible to get my static IP and my hostname changed? I don't see any other way I could be getting these constantly.

Also before I last formatted, all search engine results would show only porn/search engines, even searching for microsoft and basic things would just show porn links and nothing else, hopefully whatever is happening I don't get sent that again.

Thanks

EDIT: Sorry maybe wrong section, but just thought static IP's are for dsl section.

Download and run CWShreader (the stand alone one) and install the Google Toolbar which should block pop-ups.

CWShredder found nothing, and searching in any search engine, msn, google etc still shows porn results, but when I go to page 2, then back to page 1 it is ok, just not when the page first loads when searching.

Popups are also still appearing, just search ones now, and Adaware is constantly finding new things, ran about 10 searches 1 after the other, always finds more readded.

ok, it seems a couple of your standard settings may have changed.
get a lil program called asquared. it will tell you about your system.
BHO's are prolly the main culprit here though.
often times too, the change is in the registry.
use spybot and go advanced.....
click tools in the left hand window at the bottom and then look in the BHO folder to see if any strange things have sortied into there....
also, look into the browser page folder to see what is there....i think spybot can also reset to original config too....
g'luck.....
