It could be that something has got past the ad blocker before it was updated, etc. I'd suggest running Adaware and Spybot S&D (both of which are free) to try and remove any existing spyware which may be present on your system.

As always with these types of software, ensure that you only remove what you're sure is malicious, and that you backup everything before removing it. Also make sure that the software is updated before running a scan.

Finally, it may be worth having a read of the Essential Security Software tutorial, as it contains quite a bit of useful information.

Hi,

Have you tried downloading and running Ad-Aware or Spybot Search and Destroy. Sounds like a piece of spyware has installed itself on your system. One or both of these programs should detect and remove it.
