web page reappears

  Duncanf 09:23 25 Apr 04

I typed in 'free word games' to Google as I enjoy TextTwist and other word problems. When I finished, I found that when I came out the programme, a web page entitled 'Gamesplayground.com' came up on screen unexpectedly. I can't stop it doing this so can anyone suggest how I stop it happening? Thanks again.

Try Ad-aware click here and Spybot click here

Download, update and run.

Thanks VoG for your suggestions earlier.
I downloaded ad-aware and it revealed a number of risks. Although I don't fully understand the programme I quarantined six items. I also discovered I had picked up 3 viruses. These have been safely removed although I had to disable System Restore to clear one.
The stray page has vanished! Thanks again.
