I run anti-virus programs and they do nothing and my computer is running like crap. Not the most computer-saavy person in the world but i know enough to realize i need some help, and any advice is appreciated.

Besides waking up in the morning and having 25 pop-ups on the screen; whenever i open up internet explorer every page im looking at has text highlighted green (random words highlighted on every single web page). If you hover the mouse over the words its a sponsored link. The pages take a long time to load b/c of this and i then i get plenty of other pop-ups in the meeantime.

I have norton anti-virus and spybot and they seem to do nothing. My computer is about 4 yrs old and use it in college, and the slow performance is very frustrating. This problem is about a month old and have tried a lot but nothing seems to help....

Any ideas or thoughts would be a great help to me
