That's happened to me.  I believe they seek out sources of warmth.  Couple of years back a woman in the Lake District was bitten by a False Widow spider - our version of the Black widow. She reacted badly, and was hospitalised, but survived. In that case, she had her electric blanket on, and the spider had sought out its warmth.  It bit her when she got into bed.

I never knew that DaveR was from Indian ancestry.  I was certain he was Welsh born and bred.

This article suggests otherwise.    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/6161691.stm

Both he and your own good self originated in the Indian Sub-continent, F, as did just about every European. Of course, modern humans have evolved - most noticeably in height...    :o

The virus dear Boy.
It has now now become so bad that any internet usage (from this PC) on any Browser is ruined by annoying adverts popping up, and then opening pages whether I click on them or not.
It started in Firefox, but now the same sites accessed via Google are also affected.
Typing this post took about 15 mins, and required me to close about 20 ads.   :( :(

If you are running Windows may I suggest you download Microsoft Security Essentials.  This is a piece of software that runs in the background and keeps your computer clean.  After installation run the Full Scan which should find any troublesome items.  The software is free.   I have it installed on my PC, two laptops and a Notebook and have been free of problems for ages.
Don't ask me why I have so much hardware, just can't bear to part with them!   :D

Fester The virus you have should probably be removed by downloading the program in this link:
  http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3001-8022_4-10804572.html?spi=6b0e5e180d1565f4d63d3acaa25ebcc4
 
When you run it, during installation, untick the 'install trial version'
When it has installed, allow it to check for updates & let it install them. Then run a quick scan (this will probably seem like a  slow scan :-)  )
When it finishes, let it delete anything it finds, then restart your pc when asked.

Trust me. This will not mess up your pc, & should remove the problem.

If you have no antivirus running or your current one has expired & you dont want to pay for renewal. Uninstall any you have on your pc & install security essentials as recommended by Yorkie.

Just a point, Microsoft Security Essentials stays on your PC constantly monitoring and protecting your system.  It can also be set to auto update and run a full, or partial scan at regular intervals. 
 ££$

I also recommend System Mechanic from Iolo which keeps your system tuned either manually or automatically.  This is a subscription service at $15 a year but well worth the outlay.

Progress so far on my crusade to rid myself of this PC Virus.

CCleaner.  A quick download and run, found over 700 items to eradicate, which I proceeded to do,
Once restarted, the virus symtoms were still evident.  NO SUCCESS.

Kaspersky.   Quite slick software, but once run found no items to fix.  Then it proceeded to bombard me with on screen attempts, and email attempts to buy other security products from Kaspersky.  NO SUCCESS.

1-Rob-1, your link took my to a slick download from 'Microsoft Partners' and 'SparkNet'
The prompts you mentioned were never displayed, but when RUN, the 'speedometer' type dashboard found over 700 naughty items.  The option to FIX ALL is displayed.
When you click that, it asks yo to register, which I did.
Sadly, that simply takes you to an endless loop where you are asked for £19 to buy the security product.  ANOTHER FAIL.

Now to try Yorkie's solution.
