Losing Control of my Computer

I have virus protection, firewalls, popup blockers, a spyware remover,
& a CWS shredder, but still I'm spending more time clicking off popups,
deleting unwanted bookmarks from my Favorites list, & deleting unwanted
shortcuts from my desktop, than working with my computer. How do you
keep free from these swarms of pests?

Many of these files are attached to \WINN\system32\. If find many
files attached to this but don't know what they are so don't know which
to delete. Where can I get a directory of file names?

The most tenacious of these pests are Aurora,
banners.searchingbooth.com, ads1.revenue.net,
fad.1115.nyc1.targetnet.com, adserver.sharewareonline.com,
www.smileycentral.com, ads.addynamix.com, net-offers.net, All Jackpots
Online Casino, & All Shots Casino. How do you cut these off?

I think i found the problem. I found my firewall disabled and can't
reactivate it. I'll have to call Symantec to discuss this. And when
running Norton Virus Protector, it indicated a virus in
C:\ied_s7m.cab\nnet.exe which it can't remove or quarantee. This might
have something to do with the firewall being shut off.

I downloaded another popup blocker & an adware blaster. This got rid
of most of the popups except those from Aurora, RateMyPup, &
coolweb.com. But I talk to Symantec about this.
