If you know your system well you can go into your Add/Remove programs list and check to see if you might have installed something that shouldn't be there.

get a good antivirus, a lot of the popups will not be found by adware programs you have to run antivirus to get rid of them, this schould find all the trojan horses (which I'm sure you have on your pc)

try this one, its probably the best and its FREE

followed by

for all your other popups

Enjoy

I'v given up on Winblows... My I.P. address was given to all the spyware sites I think.. no matter what I did they all came back, beggining to think microsof anti spyware is "spyware" stay away I got it in record time with that installed.
I fixed it by making a Linux (Mandrake) server as my firewall\router to my networked Winblows computers, and can still play online games. Linksys router worked well for awile but no online games and eventually failed in the end.
So far so good with current setup.

Spy Bot search and destroy is best for this..
