Explorer Problem

  KAI 13:46 04 Aug 2007

Hi to all, My son has a Laptop and has got a problem with Internet Explorer,I have scanned the computer with Spybot and several other software and Norton Antivirus, he did have virus and Worm infestation but I have got rid of the lot, I have updated all the software including install of Sp2 and latest Explorer 7.

The only problem now is when I go online the home page opens OK and then several unwanted ones pop up one after the other one is Sky poker and so on.
The virus I found was the Virus protect pro and the Zlob worm, as I said I have done several scans since and it all comes back clear.

Has anybody any Idea what could be causing it, he is running XP Sp2 Zonealarm Lavasoft Spybot Search and Destroy etc.
Any help would be appreciated.
