Install an anti spyware program to check and keep computer clean. There have been numerous postings in these forums in the past as to what to use, so do a search for Anti Spyware programs.

You should download SpywareBlaster as well. It blocks a lot of nasty web sites while browsing the net, you have to manually update it however every week or so. I would also install McAfee SiteAdvisor it highlights safe and dangerous sites when searching using google.
