I will personally vouch for Dave, a/k/a noahdfear. He is an MS MVP and the creator of a tool (smitrem) that removes 7 of the top 10 malware threats of 2005.

Do you use a firewall and antivirus protection? Here is some general advice about computer security:

Also new browser (either Firefox or Opera), SpywareBlaster, MVPS Hosts file, then ofcourse Anti-malware/anti-spyware scanners, such as Ad-aware SE Personal & SpyBot S&D which you update and then scan your computer with them to remove anything bad.. And as Johanna said.. Anti-virus/Firewall should always be there. Safe surfing!
