    Hi Vivek,
    Pllease don't get me wrong, But the fact that ur using IE, in itself is ridiculous!!! It's the worst browser on this earth. U can't use a more obsolete,damage prone product. Absolute junk in my opinion. Clean ur PC with one of the above mentioned softwares & then start using Opera or Firefox. U will be amazed by the sheer speed & features of these nifty pieces of work. Use the inbuilt popup blockers in these browsers & have a ball surfing the net.
    Cheers! :D
    regards.

    If you still want to use IE:

    Goto c:\windows\downloaded program files\
    and Delete all the plugins except that of Java, Shockwave and Quick Time.

    visit www.doxdesk.com // identifies most of the spywares
    Install and run Spybot & Adware
    Install Google toolbar. pretty cool in stopping popups.

    If you are running Windows XP, stop the Messenger service. To do Right clikc My Computer Icon in the Desktop and choose Manage.
    Choose Services, and scroll down for Messenger service. Right click and choose Properties. In the properties dialog choose the Startup type as Disabled. You dont need this service, because this is only used to send and receive messages in a network. MSN messenger will have no problem when this is disabled.

    Also try Autoruns.exe from www.sysinternals.com, to check what all programs are started during ur system startup.
