Blank Multiple IE's

By thebobbster ·
When I'm online, from time to time, blank Internet Explorers keep on popping up on my screen until my computer locks up and I have to shut off my computer. I've gone to the Microsoft home page for an update but it keeps on telling me that there's none available at the time. The URL that comes up when the problem starts is

Now I used to have netzero but I uninstalled it a while ago. I also have Mcafee firewall wall up, running and upto date.

Appears to be adware trying to call home. Download, install, update, and run Ad-Aware SE and Spybot S&amp. Both are available at

If you have Win2K or XP, download and install Microsoft Anti-Spyware beta. Link below.

If problem persists after using these tools, add a comment with results of scans.

That was the problem, thanks a Mil! Sad thing is that I have Mcafee spyware protection and I've run the AOL spyware on my computer before but they both failed to detect the 53 files that were infected.
Here's a list of what was on my pc:
Netword Agent
Oemji Toolbar
Searchlt Toolbar
Tracking Cookie(s)
