there's chance of it coming from the running of activex. once it's launched it check what wallpaper is used and put it in backgroud of the file "desktop.html. it also add a javascript for launching a flash movie. then the pop-up is linked to the desktop from now on. to get rid of it do the following : click rihgt on the desktop -> properties change the wallpaper in desktop thumbnail.
let us know

I guess adware 6.0 from lavasoft should do some real good.... get it from downlaod.com -> it works all the time for me anyways...
