    Download and install AVG from http://www.grisoft.com/us/us_index.php

    Download adaware from

    Then go to windowsupdate.microsoft.com

    If you still have the problem at the end of that then post back.
    (Remembering of course to scan for viruses and spyware, etc.)

    Also, stop visiting any dodgy sites such as certain Pr0n sites and things like that.
