I have downloaded/ran both the Ad-Adware SE Personal and Spybot SD to eliminate the numerous IE popups that I have been getting. I have ran them both several times, including at restart, yet I am still getting popups windows titled "Aurora". They are for various ads. Here is my Hijack Log. Please let me know if you see anything that needs to be removed.

After posting my Hijack log, I searched through the other posts for Aurora and found one that mentioned the "my pctuneup" website. I went to the website and ran their uninstall. It appears to have eliminated the Aurora popups I was receiving. I have been surfing the net for a few minutes now and have not had any popups. I reran Hijack log and did a compare of the new to the one I posted and there is no difference what so ever. Not sure what the uninstall did, but it appears to have worked.
