Pop Up

Please can you help me?

Every time I conect to the internet I keep gettin a pop-up advertisement for something called Stardoor. rond. I don't know why this is happening, but it is a pain. I have my pop-up blocker turned on, but it keeps putting itself on the allowed pop-up sites.
I have used both AVG Anti Spyware and Windows defender, the former recognises the is 'malicious' Trojan and Adware on my computer and advises it be cleaned and quarentined as I have done, but it keeps returning.
I don't understand how this has happened and (I don't know how true this is) I am told that these can strip all the information from my computer.
Can any one help me? I'm at my wits end.

My very many thanks

if you have xp i would suggest running the sweep with system restore turned off which is probably why it keeps returning.

Many thanks to the both of you. I tried both and it seems, this morning, to have done the trick. No Pop-Ups...Hooray!
