NoScript + AdBlock Plus go along way on top of your average Firewall, Spyware, Malware software.

You hit the nail on the head.  I went in last night and looked and found some suspect shit, so I picked up Spyware Doctor and ran it.....sure enough it found 3 trojans and over 100 "infections" no doubt caused by the trojans.  It was still removing them this morning when I left, but hopefully this is it.  Going to add those things to Firefox too. 

Another question though.  I have Cyberdefender Antivirus, and it seems like it should have caught this.  Are there better programs, or is that and the Spyware Dr. good???

Make sure you run those programs in Safe mode with fully up-to-date definitions and no internet connection running.

If that doesn't work you may have to locate the virus manually, if it comes to that, I'll try to give you some pointers.

Yeah I ran my program (Spyware Doctor), and deleted the 100 plus infections and trojans, but something is still there.  I run it, remove the infections, then run it again and have like 50 more!!  I guess there is something bringing them in somewhere

lol spywre doctor is shit you should get McAfee its one of the best and trust me it works 100% after the scan you will have no viruses or trojans ever again. it even comes with a siteadvisor which is a toolbar that adds onto your internet explorer or firefox and it tells you which websites are good and which are bad when you go on them. it turns red when they are bad and green when they are good so you will never get a virus again.
