I doubt that it is your ISP. Possibly spyware click here
AdAware click here
SpybotSD

Or maybe something set up to update automatically.

Something is trying to connect, download and run Spybot, and see what that throws up..
Also a virus scan may be inorder, if that find's nothin , have a look at the Processes ( Ctrl+Alt+Del) you will have to go through them and check them out just do a Google for each name and see if it's ok..

If it still persists, post back ......
