Specs: Windows XP
I have a real bad spyware issue where sometimes when i select a bookmark or link it redirects it to an advertisement site

then im getting this thing were im on the computer and all of a sudden i hear an advertisment playing in the background so i go to process explorer and killed the process of b.exe (sometimes dtemp.exe) and it would stop

i went through the computer deleted alot of temp stuff including the a b c d .exes but it is still occurring

i turned off restore, went into safe mode, did an anti virus scan (AVG free edition 8.5) and it was all clean but still the spyware continue

please help, thanks
