I am aware you stated that you "formatted my whole machine".
So that should be the answer. Or put another way, I shouldn't even be asking.
I just want to confirm that you did actually Re-Format your Hard Drive, prior to reinstalling the operating system, DirectX 9.0c, Chipset Drivers, and the additional drivers.
I'm asking, to "rule-out" that you may have done an "over the top" repair installation, which would have left any malware in place and still actively causing you problems now.
What is the "home page" that your IE goes to?
Do you recognize the page as one you intentionally selected.
If not, attempt to change the home page to something common, like www.abcnews.com, or Staples.com.
Do you get re-directs when you open IE?

I have downloaded a free diagnostic program called freshdiagnose, but there doesn't seem to be an obvious problem (it does't run a test per se, it just gives info on things...)
I also have reinstalled the wireless card software (which is Ralink), so I then went onto the ralink website for available driver updates: http://www.ralinktech.com/supp-1.htm
not sure which of the top 2 to download, or if I should download them!!

You may have already covered these trouble-shooting steps provided by Microsoft, but if not here goes:
I usually find the glitch with those protocols and a few of their links.
Easiest for Wireless is to checkmark the box for "Let Windows Manage your Connection"
