Each time i search something up or talk about it on a forum , i get spam emails about those subjects in the following days and it last's for weeks or even more.

What's the explication, does this happen to anybody else?

You might have a keylogger picking up your keystrokes and sending them off to a group of spammers. If that's the case, it's also possible that the spammers are stealing any passwords or other information you enter (how do you think they got your email address?).

Do some virus scans NOW. Microsoft Security Essentials is actually pretty good, and it's free. If that picks nothing up, make a Kaspersky Rescue Disk and try it.

If you do find and remove malware successfully, you would be wise to change any passwords you've entered recently. Change your email as well, if it's feasible. If you've entered any credit/debit card information, definitely get the card(s) canceled and replaced. Spammers love stealing financial information.
