    what is your home page set to ??

    check Tools > Internet Options ...... sometimes it'll get messed up and then everytime you open your browser, a few ads will come up along with it b/c it's set to some other home page. I always use a Blank page for mine.

    download spybot from www.download.com and try running that. should get rid of a lot of the stuff Ad Aware doesn't find.
