In last week or so, when I bought the Orange Box coincidentally, in the middle of Half-Life, (Or any game) it's minimized with an ad from internet explorer, never happened before. Then every couple of hours I get a message saying "internet explorer has encountered an error and needs to close.

I checked internet explorer, and the popup blocker is on, what's going on?

Have you run any anti virus scans lately?

The thing says I have a Trojan, I don't know how to delete it. Nothing is working with the program, and I can't find it manually.

I scanned the computer, virus found and deleted, hopefully, and I keep getting these adds.

I never use internet explorer, I just get messages that it has encountered an error and needs to close when it's not open. I've done the antivirus software thing.
