have you got SP2? check to see if anything is stored on the hard drive...also check Add/Remove Programs...also the program menus...anything...just check all over...if those are not working then perhaps system restore...but then again I dont think that will stop them either...see if you can get some sort of Pop Up blocker...

I have all the popup blockers you have but still had the problem you are experiencing. The thing that finally stopped them was (believe it or not), was the Google task bar. I downloaded and installed the google taskbar which comes with a popup blocker and this stopped them once and for all.

Try running Spybot and Adaware in safe mode (keep tapping F8 key before Windows loads and select from menu that appears).

You could also try eScan in safe mode click here
