Hi guys, I was wondering if you could lend me a hand here. I usually take care of this stuff myself now, but this is really getting me. I seem to be getting pop-ups, and I have no clue where they're coming from. My HiJackThis log looks clean to me:

I think this is okay? But I'm still getting pop-ups (and no, not the kind from a site). I think, if I remember right, they're coming from something like ads.revenue.net . I also saw a new one for something that started off like A-D-W-A-R-E and continued that way. This ring a bell for anyone? It's weird, if I reboot, as soon as I start Internet Explorer, I'll get one... And then like 15-20 will continue over the next few hours. Then, after that, nothing. It also seems to mess with my system at random times as well, causing it to go very slow (takes like 5secs to find my C: and such when I click "My Computer"). This is a big time nuisance - If anyone here has any info on how to beat this thing, please help me out. Thanks in advance!
