What I suggest is to update ALL protection, and run some scans, but not knowing what you have I can't say what would be most likely to work, but even if I did no single piece of software can catch everything, so multiple layers are best as they overlap, and each gets stuff the others may not, but there is a very important rule when it comes to protection, and thats the 1 at a time rule, basically when running a scan, or using real time protection of the same type as another product at the same time, so only run 1 firewall, 1 anti spyware and 1 anti virus at a time, you can have as many standalone scanners as you like, but only ever run 1 at a time, and disable real time protection of the same type before scanning with another standalone scanner.
So I will simply list some of the biggest names we all recommend, they are all free as standalone scanners, but if you buy them you can activate real time protection as well (but remember the 1 at a time rule), but you can use them for free without real time cover, it may look overkill, but you have nothing to worry about, but no matter what system I touch the following is the minimum I put on them, they offer protection and scanning\removal should it ever be needed, and it's a good habit to scan say 1 of these a week, so in a month you have run them all.
Spybot-S&D:- Note; The TeaTimer component of this is considered real time protection, most disable this part of the program, just look for the check boxes during the install and uncheck the TeaTimer component and you will be good to go.
CCleaner:- Note; Watch the options if you install the full version, you will need to remove the check marks in some of the options or you will add components you do not want like the Yahoo toolbar, so either use the Slim version, or take notice of what each check box gives you and remove what you do not want.
CleanUp:- Note; This does not work with Vista, at least there is no support for it so even though some say it's OK it's best to not use with anything but what they list.
See what happens after you use these, hopefully they will remove the cookies I suspect that are causing this issue for you, hope it helps.

Since the IP address has to point back to somewhere near you to route to you, it is relatively easy to see approximately where you're from. It wouldn't make sense for you Americans to use an Australian based ISP... it wouldn't make sense for routing purposes - though it might make it look like you're in a more awesome place. In other words... it's nothing to worry about.

No it is a layer of protection, it is not a junk file cleaner, but between that and the other tools I listed they get pretty much everything you can get, if these don't get something it's either too new (they haven't updated the files for it), or you need a more specialised tool, as to your anti virus, AVG is OK, but IMHO Avast is far superior, but use what you are most comfortable with, but if you ever wanted to try something else you at least have a name to try.
I don't have spybot because I alays thought it did the same thing as C-cleaner. I so have and run Web eraser and Adaware about once a week. My Antivirus is AVG free version, with newest updates.
