Probably an ad-tracker cookie. Run Spybot and AdAware.

I had the annoying advert from System Doctors and ran a Trend scan click here and after it had finished, it found 2 grayware entries:
TSPY_CIMUZ and TSPY_AGENT.TQ and deleted them.

I was then free of the pop-ups.

Might be worth a try?

I did a full 'bells and whistles' search with Webroot Spysweeper yesterday and it found some rootkits (spyware) that I wasn't aware of. You could also try the Panda online virus scan click here
