Suggested APPs: AdAware, SpyBot, Spyware Blaster, MalwareBytes, and AVG coupled with Threatfire
Try Firefox as well for testing to see if you get the same problem. If not, then its just with IE. If yes, then its nested in the OS.

Honest honest most honest course of action to take would be to restore your OS *IF* you have a
prebuilt desktop or laptop with simple factory image restore. Everytime I've thought something of that nature is gone, something wacky reappears or random functionality is impacted. Move your data somewhere safe such as a flashdrive using a Linux liveCD (older Ubuntu 9.10 is what I use - http://releases.ubuntu.com/9.10/) taking care to only move essential files such as docs, pics, music, and videos since the deliverer of your irritation might be amongst them. *IF* you installed the OS manually, this is my no means easier with loading drivers and such, but I still would suggest going that route with the voracity of the affliction you have described. The time you spend treating the disease can span days with no success; I've learned to just move on once AdAware, SpyBot, Spyware Blaster, MalwareBytes, AVG, and Threatfire have failed.
