popups when not online

Toshiba Satellite a215-s6820 notebook

Specs: Windows Vista
I got a virus about a week ago, so i got AVG antivirus. it found a virus right away and dealt with it, but about every other day since, it finds another virus. my computer has been running slow, the windows explorer "start navigation" sound has been clicking at random all day and popups continue to pop up on my screen when i leave the computer for a while, but not when i'm connected to the interent.

they pop up in internet explorer even when no programs are open. after a while of this, i uninstalled internet explorer because i only use mozilla firefox, but they continue to pop up in internet explorer even though it does not exist on my computer.

i am not very computer literate, so any help/advice would be great

2) Run full Scan with SuperAntispyware : http://www.superantispyware.com/dow... . Fix what it detects and post summary scan log.
