It does sound like you found the problem. I hate spyware, more than glad to help you remove it.
Hey bro, I'm assuming you're on a network without a router, is this the case?? I've ran into this very thing on two other private networks I've worked on recently. The first network, I couldn't figure out how to get rid of it so I reinstalled the OS and it was clean until I plugged back into the network without a router. BAM reinstalled as soon as I plugged into the modem and was in the same boat as I started in. Put a router on, reinstalled and everything is running fine. If anyone is hooked to the Internet through DSL or Cable, I would HIGHLY recommend getting a router. One of my clients caught this virus that destroyed the partition on their hard drive and it started with those annoying popups.
Sadly adware/spyware/malware gets by even content filtering and multiple routers/firewalls.
It is nasty stuff.
Hmmm, maybe I should scan my network then to see what all I have on here. Didn't know they could do that unless I actually open an email or go to a site that it tries to install. Been using BlackIce application control to see when things try to install. Which spyware tool you recommend??
I am using webroot spysweeper
