Try the following:

Get CWShredder from http://www.intermute.com/spysubtract/cwshredder_download.html (Get the standalone version if you want. It is freeware)

Close any browser or windows before running CWShredder.exe. Let it fix what it need to fix. Reboot. See if there is a still issue. If pop-up won't go away, scan the system using Ad-aware SE in safe mode.

If still have issue, get HijackThis diagnostic tool.

HijackThis download locations:
http://castlecops.com/zx/Merijn/hijackthis.zip
http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/HijackThis.exe
http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/hijackthis.zip
http://downloads.subratam.org/hijackthis.zip

Where to put and how to use HijackThis:

It is important that you will run HijackThis.exe in its own folder so the backup files that HijackThis file will create will not be accidentally deleted.

Open 'My Computer', then double-click to open C:\ (or the drive letter that your Windows is installed)
In the menu bar, click File-->New-->Folder.
That will create a folder named New Folder, which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis". Now you have C:\HJT\ or C:\HijackThis\ folder. Put your HijackThis.exe there, and double click to run it.

Click 'Scan' button. Click 'Save log' button. Save the 'hijackthis.log' in your desktop. Copy and paste the content of 'hijackthis.log' and post it forums that offers HijackThis analysis. Those forums can be found in http://www.a-sap.org

Your HijackThis log will be analyzed if your system is infected with any known or suspicious malware by HJT analysts.
