    For the past week or so I've been getting popups randomly when IE is not even open. They are for things like maxtheater.com and leadingedgecash.com. the Maxtheater.com popup asks me if I want to download content from Odysseus Marketing, to which I've obviously said 'no.'

    I've run Spybot and Adaware. Below is the Hijack This log. Please help. This is supremely irritating. Thanks very much for any help.

    Thanks for your offer. I got it sorted out. I loaded WinPatrol, which worked like a charm and eliminated something called dvpacka.exe. Hadn't had any problems since. Spybot and Ad-aware didn't catch it.

    Happy Camper :)
