Advert appears when launching IE

Every time I fire up Internet Explorer, before I have chance to type anything into Google(my home page) an ad appears for e-bay. Can anyone explain how to get rid of it as I presume there is a file somewhere that runs every time IE is started. Also I am fed up of those pop-up BT ads that are not even in date anymore. Who do you complain to about it?

I have Keiro firewall and Norton anti-virus running. Also i've found a programme that tries to run on start up called RVP/bpc.exe and have no idea what it is so i have disabled it. I'll give ad-aware a go as well. Many thanks

Apparently this RVP/bpc.exe is spyware associated with grokster.
