Download Avast and run its boot time scanner. Then disable ALL browser add ons.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.

The "Cancel" button on a pop-up ad isn't really a button. It's just a link to even more ads and spyware. It may look like the same cancel buttons you click in programs and on legitimate websites, but it simply doesn't function that way.

Please follow these steps. Avast may have found some of them but it seems you are infected with some spyware.
