Just did a bootime scan with avast and it found two virus in
Users/my account/app data/local/temp/nskde22.tmp/>$pluginsdir/Bi.client.exe is infected by win32: somoto-F [pup]

And another one in the temporary Internet files.

How did I get these? I told it to delete the files which it did successfully.

firefox has an inbuilt import feature
 
Ie has one flaw that ms has not fixed and that drive by downloads. When you go to a good web page like toms and there an ad banner and in the ad banner is a infected ad. You don't click on it but a window pops open and the virus is dropped onto the system. That why lot people use Firefox and other browsers with pop up blockers.
