Pop-ups + changes in Security Internet settings?

  Ex plorer 16:46 26 Mar 2007

Hi I am having problems with pop ups and they are Adult sites,
I don’t want that kind of thing on my systems.
It’s on two of my XP home PCs and I don’t know how or where it’s originated from.

I have found that my settings have been changed in Security to Internet if I Click on trusted sites I cant apply it as the apply button wont highlight.
I can set it at medium (Default) but it gets changed to Internet and the problems start.

I have deleted all history Cookies and settings on Fire Fox and IE.
I have run AVG and Add-a wear SE Personnel and found various unwanted virus and Trojans which I deleted but the problem is back.

Just before the pop-up I get a warning that IE may be infected with porn and I should down-load there antivirus wear, sorry but I didnt catch the name of it.
