Ok for about 3 months or so I have had major problems with popups and spyware. I manually removed everything I was aware of and then it would just come back every few days. Yesterday I finally had enough of it and I downloaded the Microsoft Spyware Remover beta (since ad-aware and Spyware doctor didn't do the trick), installed a new firewall (ZoneAlarm) and a new browser (Firefox seemed the best way to go). This morning everything seemed to be going great untill a little while ago I started getting popups again! They were all generally the same and had a liitle bar near the bottom that said something about "Web Nexus Network". I could really use some help to solve this problem. Here is a HijackThis log from just a minute ago.

And one more thing, a little before the pop ups started Windows Anti Spyware dected this file trying to start up or something. I blocked it though: "ldks4d.exe" I'm not sure if that is releated but I thought I would mention it. Thanks for anyone who helps out.

Hmmm, what a surprise. It's been a few days and some of the Spyware was reinstalled. Now I'm getting pop ups for about: blank and www.0dp.com, along with those Web Nexus things. It's like this crap is still on my system even after I remove it in safe mode. I wasn't even using IE or anything. Here is a newer scan from HijackThis.
