Your wifi may have been hijacked. Go to MAC addresses or, better still, go hardwired.

  ArrGee 22:48 10 Nov 2009

Just going through your hijack dump - have you disabled most of this via msconfig? If not, I would suggest you do for a faster system.

Thank you ArrGee
my system is fast enough since it mostly only used for email and internet.
Malwarebytes removed 4 threats
these are:
Adware.MyWebSearch
Adware.MyWay
Adware.Hotbar
Adware.MyWebSearch
these were all in the registry and mywebsearch was in the registry in two diffrent locations.
Also could these be why random popups and ads appear.

sorry wifi is secured by WPA2

How much music have you downloaded via iTunes?
Have you watched any videos over the net?
