Here are some uninstall tools you can use to remove the offending spyware.
Why are you opening IE if your spyware comes back. Install a new browser. I would reinstall windows. Some spyware programs destroy your OS when you remove them. NEVER OPEN EMAILS WITH ATTACHMENTS FROM UKNOWN PEOPLE NEVER CLICK ON ADVERTISEMENTS NEVER INSTALL SOFTWARE TO VIEW SITES ALWAYS HAVE A FIREWALL AND ANTIVIRUS NEVER INSTALL FREE TRIAL PROGRAMS
You forgot the most important:
DON'T USE IE FOR ANYTHING EXCEPT WIPING YER BUM. And Windows Update. :)

Greedy microsoft configured Windows Update so that it only works with IE, so you have to expose yourself to a world of spam when updating. Be sure to use Firefox.
Search on microsoft's site for their new AdWare scanner... it's been doing well on my system... Usually the shiet that I wouldve normally gotten on my system usually hasnt been a problem.

I would make sure you get FireFox too, first thing you should do really, Internet Explorer is just flawed. Zone Alarm has privacy features to help stop it showing up, plus a firewall is good, so yeah get that, AdAware is good, and i would get MS antispyware, but thats from the devil itself, but combigned with ad-aware it pretty much stops it dead.
