I believe I either have spyware or a virus that keeps opening IE windows periodically. I have done ull scans with both AdAware and Norton, but they find nothing and it keeps happening. I am very concerned.

Can anyone give me an idea of what this might be and how to get it out of my system?

Some of the windows are for random prize webistes and some go to a Google page that claims it couldn't find those keywords in any documents.
