Here is one of the sites.

And I also attached the msinfo. I renamed the file to txt but it is actually a rar file. It was to big to upload.

you have been infected with a download trojan, probably from all that warez you download. don't pretend you don't know what i'm talking about if you want to test my theory unplug or disable your internet connection and reboot. you will have no popups

my friend's computer had the same exact problem. even after a windows OS reinstall you may be reinfected from your other infected files. symantec norton anti-virus detected and repaired our problem easily. have you tried this software yet? there is a free trial download on the symantec site.

if a spyware remover doesn't work try a manual search for the name of the site that pops up, and delete it.

Tried Symantec and that didnt work. I even executed a live update and still didnt get the trojan off. It is definitely adsware and did a search for that dll but cannot find the folder that it is in. It is well hidden.

This is another ad site that pops up on my screen.

This is the main one. Any other Ideas or lights out!!!!

delete all suspicous entries in your start button> all programs> startup menu. look in the add/ remove program list in the control panel for any software that might be doing it. if you have a file sharing app installed that is most likely where the program came from.
