Angry Popups not being blocked?

Hello all, I have had a problem with popups lately. It started after I installed some software (Which I know has been uninstalled trying to get these pop ups out). The pop ups always say 'Advertisement by Outerinfo' and I can't seem to figure out why these are still popping up. Thanks for the help, Jeremiah.

That's the problem, I'm not sure. It could have been a duplicate file killer, to FL Studios 7, to a 'crack' that I didn't know was on my computer, so I tried using it...

I found out what it was. It's some Cowabanga by OIN or something like that. I looked on google for OuterInfo and found this.

SpyWare BeWare! -> Outerinfo pop-ups PurityScan - OIN - Oinadserver

I know it's another forum, I feel like I cheated on Tech Forums.
