It is refered to by McAfee as Adware-Apropos. I have all the symptoms they say (pop-ups, homepage changed, added icons to desktop) and they say it originates in a hidden folder cxtpls...which I have. I have run McAfee and Spybot...both claiming they "fixed the problem." Anyone know of or heard of or (hopefully!) know how to remove this!?
