Hello all. I am having a problem with a popup on a user machine that is not being blocked by the popup blocker. I ran a boot scan for viruses using avast and also ran malwarebytes and anti spy. All programs show no infections. I have my computer setup with all the options including show all hidden files and system files.

When the user goes into a website and starts browsing a small pop up appears saying "http:/// cannot connect to facebook" facebook is filtered through our webfilter so no one can access the outside net. I did remove an infection called nail.exe with the manual removal instructions and still no success in finding out why I am getting this pop up. [attachment=48124:error.pdf]

I am runnning windows xp pro SP2. (SP3 is causing problems)
I have attached a pdf file with the error.

I am not a noob so just shoot away with answers and suggestions. I know my way around a computer like it is part of me.

Thanks in advance for your help.
