I would suggest running ad-aware SE and spybot 1.3.

For Spybot, make sure you also install the update (you can find it on the same page)

Posting a log from hijackthis as Jvuz has told would surely help

Additional note on SPYBOT ... If you are running version 1.2 it will NOT update automatically.  You must download a new version 1.3 to get the updates.
Right now it checks for 17679 variations. If your version checks for any LESS it is NOT up-to-date.  Go download the update(s).

Please don't post your log from hijackthis into the discussion.  You may post a LINK to it if running these spyware destroying programs doesn't fix the problem.
