Here you go

do you have any spyware protection/removal software?
Ad-Aware here

Spybot S&D here

After you download and install, go ahead and check for any updates.

If you still have problems try these:
They have a trail version so check them out as they are very good.
Spy sweeper and Window Washer

For more serious problem like Coolweb try this

For on-line virus scan try these
Panda here

Trend Micro (Housecall) here

RAV here

If you need virus protection try AVG.

As with all software, they should be checked for updates often especially anti-virus software.

A firewall is also recommended. Zone Alarm has a free edition and can be found here.

Well I guess if it was used then someone might have got on it before you got the computer but then again you could have got on a site but i wish you luck with getting rid of your problem.
