porn site keeps popping up on my IE

Specs: Windows XP, not sure

OK, this is what happened.. I was browsing the internet (not looking at porn sites) and all of a sudden all of these spyware/malware/viruses get downloaded onto my computer. It also did stuff like disabling my Task Manager and locking up my desktop background so that I couldn't change it. I ran a bunch of antispyware applications, such as ad-aware, Microsoft Antispyware, the ewido and trendmicro online scans. Those applications fixed most of my problems, and I was able to fix the task manager and desktop background issues by going through regedit.

The only noticeable problem that I have now is that the pornsite "sex-invisble dot com" keeps popping up on my Internet Explorer browser. For example, when I am viewing another webpage, all of a sudden it changes into this porn site. Sometimes, it even opens up an IE browser on its own when I don't have any IE browsers up.

Please help. Please please please help. Thank you in advance.

Also, I'm not very computer savvy, so the simpler the better. Thanks.

Try this:

Choose download SpySweeper from this line:

Delete Win32/Vundo.522752!Trojan automatically >>> Get PestPatrol or Download SpySweeper at the above link

Then download and run ccleaner to clean out all your temp files. Make sure there is not anything in the recycle bin that you need as ccleaner will delete recycle bin items unless checked not to do so.

You might also switch to Opera and/or FireFox for web browsing. They are free, excellent, and much less vulnerable than Internet Explorer.
