Something call Popnav has hi-jacked my Hotmail

I setup Outlook 2000 as the front-end for my Hotmail e-mail account. When I click on the Hotamil 'Inbox' folder in Outlook, it downloads any e-mails from Hotmail. However, I've now started getting this popping up in the Outlook window area every time: click here

I can't get rid of it to view my emails. If I go into Hotmail directly, it's not in the inbox there. Does anyone know where it's come from and how I can get rid of it?

Gandalf - I downloaded and ran AdAware 6 (it found 236 objects) but as soon as I fired up Outlook, Popnav hijacked the inbox window again. I'm also finding IE crashing regularly now.

I've downloaded and run Adware, Spybot, Spyware Blaster, SpywareGuard and StartPage Guard, but I'm still getting annoying pop-up's and hijacking of my browser when I open a new window or try opening a folder in Outlook. Admittedly, not every time, and the crashing of IE has now stopped, but I thought appltying all the above would stop anything nasty getting through.

VoG and everyone, thanks for all your advice - appear to be popup-free now and Outlook even intercepted My Doom.

er - one further question. I've got Windows XP and have set up four user accounts. Do I need to log in as each in turn to run Adware, SpyBot, etc....? Reason I ask is that as soon as my wife logged in today, she got inundated with the usual popup shower, whereas I'm now popup-free. Her home page url is the same as mine.
