    Dear Tech Support Guys,

    let me just say first the info you give on this site and your help means they should bottle your blood. (y)

    I have an annoying pop up which shows up overlaying the pane I am currently viewing (unless I am typing or clicking the cursor) of which it will appear behind the current pane.

    It showed up after a browsing session of my girlfriends after viewing japanese language websites.

    The particular annoying pop up is 1/4 screen size, with no max/minimise or restore down tabs, just a close tab in top right hand corner.

    In tracing it back to task manager processes I have found it to be located in the mshta.exe location.

    I have been loath to tamper with it for fear of losing or changing something important.

    I downloaded hijackthis after reading some similar threads about similar problems. The resulting log is below:
