- All the icons on the desktop have a white box around their names.

- Explorer home page has changed from yahoo to findthewebsiteyouneed.com and every time I open a page I get a big ad at the top

- Lots of Explorer windows open by themselves even when the prgram is not active.

- A random letter on the top lefthand corner of Explorer (it changes with every new page)

Someone suggested this is the culprit:


It's a Dell 4600 running Windws xp. I ran Ad-Aware and it helped but still getting those unwanted windows. And the machine still seems sluggish. I also installed AVG Antivirus free trail but haven't run it yet because I already have The Shield Pro installed. And I'm planning on uninstalling Explorer.
