You have a virus. Adware to be exact, not a virus per se. You'll need to take that to someone who know what their doing, you can really mess a computer up bad trying to remove those things.

It's worth getting an expert to check your computer out at:
Register, go to the Hijack This Forum, read the instructions on how to post a log, give a brief description of your problem (like you've just typed) and post your log there. The guys in there are fantastic and trustworthy and will guide you through in getting rid of anything nasty from your computer. Good luck!

Strongly recommend NetDog Porn Filter, it can blocked porn sites quitely in the background when anyone's on the internet.
