Go here :

http://www.spywareinfo.com

D/l and run Spybot Search and Destroy.

See what 'nasties' it finds. If you see whatever it is there then you can delete it easily.

If not sure then post back here for further help.

thanks to everyone who read this post!!! i decided to do a regedit and ran a "Find" to find all of the references to the unwanted pop up and deleted the unwanted references. this eliminated the problem. thanks again!!!!
