I am having an ad server pop up that goes to a site called banners.searchingbooth.com or ads.deskwizz.com to download pop-up ads to my computer. I have tried adaware, spybot, spy hunter, and tds3, to no avail. I can not find the source of this. Here is my Hijack this log file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi ylwjacket

Welcome to geekstogo! ;)

Please read through the instructions before you start (you may want to print this out).The following items are malware and must be fixed

Please set your system to show all files; please see here if you're unsure how to do this.

Press Control-Alt-Del to enter the Task Manager.
Click on the Processes tab and end the following processes:
C:\WINNT\system\fnijxs.exeExit the Task Manager when finished.

Reboot into Safe Mode: please see here if you are not sure how to do this.

Using Windows Explorer, locate the following files/folders, and delete them:

C:\WINNT\system\fnijxs.exe

Exit Explorer, and reboot as normal afterwards.

If you were unable to find any of the files then please follow these additional instructions:
Download Pocket Killbox and unzip it; save it to your Desktop.
Run it, and click the radio button that says Delete a file on reboot. For each of the files you could not delete, paste them one at a time into the full path of file to delete box and click the red circle with a white cross in it.
The program will ask you if you want to reboot; say No each time until the last one has been pasted in whereupon you should answer Yes.
Let the system reboot.
C:\WINNT\system\fnijxs.exe
[colo=red]End off killbox files[/color]

Reboot your Pc

Please run the following free, online virus scans.
http://www.pandasoft...n_principal.htm
http://housecall.tre.../start_corp.asp

Please post the logs From both virus scans and HJT.log we will need them to remove previous infections that have left files on your system.

I cleaned up the above mentioned file, which seems to have stopped the pop-ups.

Here's a revised HJT log:
