doubleclick

My wife has a new Sony computer running VISTA and has a hotmail account for email.
Just recently an annoying window appears on rhs on inbox which is most distracting and unwanted to say the least. By right clicking the box, saving target, and grabbing it with print screen before it vanishes in a split second have discovered that it is called .... B533/from ad.uk.doubleclick.net

Question, can I and, if so, how do I remove this?

Input, as always, gratefully received.

Thanks for your reply VoG .... a little involved but I'll try it. What I don't get though is how do I specifically stop doubleclick?

Where does the entry 127.0.0.1 ad.doubleclick.net go?

All the common nuisances like doubleclick are already included so you don't need to do any more than install the file following the special instructions for Vista.
