Search Screens Randomly Opening

Hi There

I have two similar issues with my pc. Firstly,at intermittant times I will get numerous MS Search windows opening up. Once it starts it usually keeps going for quite awhile. By keeping going I mean if I close the windows they just open back up again. This occurs regardless of being connected to internet or not and regardless of what program I am using. It is very frustrating. I have attached a screen shot.

The second issue occurs only while connected to the internet. With this one a Google search frame opens up on the left hand side of my screen. If I click out of it to right in the main portion of the screen, it automatically takes the focus back after a key stroke or two. Sometimes, to make things even more annoying the frame will open and close itself, so my eyes are constantly adjusting to where things are on the screen. I have attached a screen shot of this as well.

I have run these issues through the malaware forumn, gone right through and cleaned up my pc, see the "Multiple Search Windows, Slow pc, qw when I hit w" topic.

They are both incredibly frustrating, hopefully you can help me.
