Allright, my computer is running a Korean Version of the Windows XP.
My computer has been running perfectly fine until about 30 mins ago, when I started getting these popups

The time between each popup can vary from 1 min to 5 mins. I've ran Norton Antivirus 2008 and removed the following items:: Adware. Savenow, Adware. Purityscan. Also, I removed spyware. search ( or something close )

But these popups keep on coming. My computer has the little sand clock next to the cursor most of the time, and it is really slow. I am using a lot of CPU most of the time, and it takes a lot of time to open apps. Even longer to open basic ones like IE or Firefox. WHAT SHOULD I DO??

BTW: the popups are not from adult sites, mostly from "art galleries", some music and search sites.
