I suddenly began receiving a lot of pop-ups when some piece of junk software installed itself on my toolbar for no apparent reason. I ran Spybot-S&D and Ad-Aware, but I'm pretty sure the junkware remains in some form. Can someone tell me what I need to remove? Thanks.

Thanks for your help, guys. I did as instructed and deleted about 10 trojan downloader files, but I have a question about the TDS-3 scan results. A file came up as "Suspicious filename - HTA file in suspicious location - c:\windows\system\wbwqm.hta". What if anything should I do with this file?

Here's my new HJT logfile:
