I've been experiencing a lot of popups under firefox recently. These popups do not seem to be caused by whatever site I may be visiting, as I have gotten them from google, forums and various other sites which I know for a fact do not use popup ads.

I have tried many different antivirus and anti-spyware programs to no avail; none of them can find whatever it is causing this.

I've tried uninstalling firefox and then re-installing it, but that doesn't seem to help.

In desperation I started using Internet Explorer again in the hopes that it was a problem specific to firefox but alas no, whatever this thing is its gotten to IE as well. Opera works fine, but i'm used to firefox and would quite like to continue using it.

Here is my HijackThis log:
