No firewall....are you crazy...???
My cousin tried that and within 30 minutes of connecting to the internet his machine was compromised and he had to rebuild...took him 3 rebuilds until I suggested he turn on the firewall...it was fine after that. So, you might want to try putting the windows firewall on - it could be too late though...
Another thing you could try is the IE7 reset tool which you can find in tools->internet options->advanced.
Either way, get a firewall turned on and get something like Spybot or adaware and give your machine a good scan. Also, make sure you have a virus checker (just not norton or mcafee - they suck and cause more problems than some viruses IMHO)
