I have read the solution given by the experts on the first page of the Security area when I click on the Security tab.  
Some of the solutions do not fix the problem.  

How do I get rid of the ads234.com U.R.L?

Thank you.

Hello webdziner =)

First try running these tools in safemode, to delete everything they detect !!
========================================================
AdAware ==> http://www.spychecker.com/program/adaware.html
SpyBot  ==> http://www.spychecker.com/program/spybot.html
CoolWebShredder ==> http://www.spychecker.com/program/coolwebshredder.html
========================================================

Then if still u cannot get it resolved, then Download HijackThis v1.98.2 from here, run it and Save the LOG file:
http://tools.radiosplace.com/HijackThis.exe

Then Post it at this site >> http://www.hijackthis.de/index.php?langselect=english
and it will automatically analyse it for u,,, Fix everything which it asks u to delete :)

and if still u cannot get it working, then Post here that LOG file, and we will tell u that what is BAD in it and how to remove them :)

!! GOOD LUCK !!

SheharyaarSaahil,
Thank you for the suggestion of running the above mentioned spyware removal tools and using HijackThis.  What removed this adware threat was clicking Search in Win XP and deleting the entries that mentioned ads234. Perhaps this would help others.

Thanks for your help.
