I get a PERSISTENT popup from "http://www.strtsrv.com" which then brings up a survey or some other unwanted crapware. I am running both Adblock and Popup Blocker but it still comes up each time I open a new page! How do I get rid of strtsrv PERMANENTLY?????

You may already allowed it to get pass your security in some form or fashion and thus have to try all avenues to remove. I suggest you try HITMANPRO, 32 or 64-bit version. Best if you have a spare flashdrive and use "KICKSTART" to make a bootable flashdrive. Otherwise, get Hitmanpro and run it, use the 1-time run option and allow it scan your system. You have to be WWW connected in order for it to update and such. You may still need to "reset your browser" and re-edit some basic areas. Have you googled for hits on your malware, may have direct removal tools as some manual removal besides any AV pgm. 100% it be gone.` good luck
