Lol...you're computer got spyware. Here's a tip..don't look for cd-keys, serial numbers, cd codes,etc. Most websites will infest your pc with a lot of junk.

Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition 1.06
Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.4

Give these a try if you didn't yet. They're really good. Run full system scans with Adaware.
See if these will fix it first.

Get firefox.

www.mozilla.com

IE is bad for spyware. Firefox blocks most of it.

For spyware removal I use both spybot search and destroy and ad-aware (You have to use more than 1 to really get rid of them all.)

I really like ewido, plus they're merged with Grisoft so you should get AVG- Free for a virus scanner if you don't have it already.

I will tell you the best way to ever prevent spyware:

Knowledge. Research the ways to prevent such things and practice safe and clean procedures to keep your PC clean. If it is beyond crazy, just reformat and start new and smart. You COULD manually get rid of everything but I am American so I would reformat out of laziness haha. I have NO anti virus/spyware/firewall programs or security on my computer. I havent had a virus/problem related to spyware in about 3 years, even then it was minor.
