Re: adaware, spybot, firewall-STILL pop ups

What type of Popups are you refering to?
Ad-aware or Spybot will not stop the much exploited Messenger service boxes
that may/may not be your problem.
If you are recieving porn or advertising popups, then you may have some
undesirable program installed. or you are scanning with an outdated
reference file. Adaware has a new build out (181)
http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download/ and use web update before any
scan.

More description on what you are getting would help

Check if you have Purity Scan installed. Search your
disks for the file WINSERVS.EXE If you find it, delete
it or chang its name, then reboot. For more info search
web for "Purity Scan"
