How do I cure my Wordpress blog of this spam infection for good?

I have two Wordpress blogs on the same server, both of which have become exposed to some sort of vulnerability whereby occasionally the header file will be filled with JavaScript links and mentions of various enlargement techniques and erectile pharmaceuticals. I can delete the links but eventually they come back. I have closed the sites to comments, reinstalled the themes, reinstalled Wordpress and installed antispam systems but the vulnerability must lie in some part of the site (eg a previous comment or one of the scripts) where it can be re-used even if I update Wordpress. I don't have technical skills, so how can I find the source of this threat? If I have to install Wordpress from scratch, how can I export the content of the sites to the new install without bringing the spam with it?

Why doesn't Gmail understand what kind of spam to advertise?

How advanced are Google Ads, really? I thought we were all frightened of Google mining our GMail accounts to serve targeted ads. But when I check the spam folder of my GMail account, all I get is adverts for recipes ("Ginger Spam Salad - serves 1, refrigerate overnight") using the food product Spam! [more inside]
