Default Annoying virus

This has got to be adware or a virus but it is driving me nuts please help!

it pops up when I'm web browsing only, not when just on aol or using other internet related programs only on web sites using aol or just IE. A white screen pops up in the middle of the screen and just sits there i can still do what ever i was doing but i can't move anything over this white screen usually I press ctrl alt delete and it will go away just by doing that sometimes it won't and when i end the process rundll32 it goes right away. sometimes it pops up at the bottom of the screen kind of like coming from behind the start bar when it does that most the time I'll gets page can not be displayed message in it. I have ran several adware programs have a popup stopper and firewall but cannot get rid of this one thing. Please help it is getting so annoying having to press ctrl alt delete every few minutes I'm on the net

Thanks for any help

If you want a pay-for-browser, I highly suggest MSN 9. On the free side, I have heard great things about Firefox and Opera.
