Have you tried a spyware/adware removal tool? Look around the Spyware/Adware section of AO for pointers on good tools.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

HijackThis is a very good program... another one that I think is a little more user friendly would be ad-aware. They have a free version at:
Make sure you update the reference file to get the latest stuff.
Work... Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints...

Adaware is an excellent utility You would do well to try spybot search and destroy as well Wwhile it is not as intuitive to use it works hand in hand with adawre I use it daily on the job for spyware cleaning

Hijack this gathers startup information, so when you pc boots, it lists everything program that boots up as well, as well as settings such as your home page in IE, it lists processes, and some other stuff i cant think of. Very effective, because it lets you use your head instead of relying on a scanner to have a certain signature.
