hi peeps, well im new here n' everything

ok so heres the problem ive been having lately:

my explorer shell crashes every 5-10 min or so (leaving nothing but a blank desktop and no taskbar; as well as any IE windows), usually it restarts by itself (but if it doesnt i restart it via taskmgr and cmd). Occasionaly, I get a Visual C++ Runtime Library pop-up that tells me a buffer has been overrun (program: c:\windows\explorer.exe), and the program will be terminated; I also seem to get a few ad pop-ups as well. I use 3 different anti-virus/spyware/adware programs, and everytime I use them, they find stuff, then delete stuff, but the problem doesnt seem to ever go away. Can anyone help me fix this? I think Ive got some viruses or spyware that dont want to leave 9_9
