You need to ascertain if its a separate program running in memory or a rogue IE plugin. Try using a different browser. I would suggest Firefox with the Ad Block Plus plugin.

So you're using old and crappy software.

Ditch IE8 asap and get a real browser, as rhoobarb suggested get Firefox.

If you can upgrade to Win7 (xp isn't even supported by M$ anymore..) do so.

Virgin Media Security is not a viable antivirus. Switch to a free one ASAP that'll do a better job while using less resources. MSE or Avira/Avast, any of those 3 works.

Can't go wrong with malwarebytes, don't pay for it ever. It's unnecessary. Are you running the scan from safe mode?

Sorry Derek i can't find the link, malwarebytes didn't work for me either, what did in the end was ad-aware run in safe mode, took about 4 hours, never been back, touch wood.
