Aurora, Ceres Pop Ups

I seem to be getting unnormal pop up ads from Aurora and Ceres a lot lately. I have ran Ad-Watch SE Professional and was able to take care of some things, but it appears that I continue to have the Aurora and Ceres pop up adds.

I have attempted to research how to remove these adwares but it appears that they are dangerous and difficult to remove. I have downloaded Hijack This and Killbox, but I am unsure how to use these to help my situation.

If anyone can help me with this it would be great, thanks.

Here are my results from my Scan with Hijack This:
