Why do I get redirected to an ad site everytime I clink a link?

My computer has been acting up bad lately and now when I turn it on it tells me to load from a setup or regular windows instead of going there automatically. In addition, my internet is incredibly slow and everytime I clink a link I get an ad popup. Finally none of my spyware programs are picking it up or even updating because my internet is being blocked. I know it's a virus or a trojan is there any way to fix it without a complete reinstall?

    Looks like your computer is infected with malware.

    To remove it, get Microsoft Windows Defender (free download) or Webroot Spysweeper and let them check your computer. From then on, get a good protection package like norton antivirus 2008 or 2009. Keep your antivirus/anti-malware up to date as well as Windows via Windows update.
