sounds more like CoolWebSearch try running CWShredder. its made for ripping that crap out but it aint a party. I had cws, took 2 weeks to finally get rid of it. Reason? It has a hidden .dll that will change its name and location on every boot so if you delete every part it still had the ability to rebuild again next startup which is why it keeps coming back. Just a guess but it sounds like CWS Adaware, SpyBot were powerless against it. CWShredder and a ton of info is here --> http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/

You beat me to it. Also, sometimes there is a registry entry that is added in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services key. Also sometimes the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root key.

I have found that http://computercops.biz has some really good computer security forums. Give them a try if stuff like this keeps coming up.

I had the same problem and there were files in my registry that needed to be deleted. Go to your registry and search for www. If you see sites that are ad sites remove them. Also check your running processes and sort by CPU usage. If your computer is idle and there is a process taking up resources it may be ad software on your computer and you will need to go into your services and stop the service that is causing the pop-ups. My computer had an extra lsass.exe in the running processes that was causing the problems. I couldn’t stop the process I had to stop the service.
