Why do I still get porn site pop up ads?

Question

Hello, Whenever I am using Internet Explorer for some reason I get porn site pop ups. At first it started every time that I opened Internet Explorer. I changed my start page and it does not pop up when I open Explorer anymore. However it does it at random when I go to other websites. and it also opened up when I tried to go to My Computer. It all started when we had a Hot Mail account that got tons of porn e-mail everyday. I have since closed the account and I have run virus programs that look like they work at first but they don't since these pop ups happen at random. Thanks
