Do you mean while are you surfing the internet? We have the same problem. Spybot won't cure the problem. See the dicussion of internet speed by Hughbeaver. At the end, I have done a clear installation to resolve it. You need to pay more attention while you are browsing some sites. If it pops up with a message to install something the you don't know, either you click Yes or No, it will still be installed to your PC. I usually use ALT CTRL DEL to remove the webpage, but you gotta to be fast enough,even in a few seconds without your response, it will be installed in your PC. These programs even get through your firewall.
