    Your need to run a Virus scanner and maybe another spyware remover, such as SpyBot. And stop going to the sites you are going to, which are re-inserting them.

    Let me explain a little better, I already have an anti virus, it detects and deletes them, and this is a clean install, I havent gone to any websites or downloaded ANYTHING yet. Is spybot free?
