Please run a free online virus scan here (tick the "Auto Clean" checkbox): Needs to be run with Internet Explorer.
http://housecall.antivirus.com/

And a free trojan scan here: (you will have to download the 30 day trial of "The Cleaner" here)
http://www.moosoft.com/

Reboot your PC. Post a new log.

Hey whats up. Housecall found a bat_sasser.a which I deleted and verified was not there. The Cleaner did not find anything. The pop-ups still kept coming up. I noticed using msconfig tht there was a blank startup program. I disabled it and I think the popups stopped. Here's a pic of msconfig:
