Do you have a constant connection to the net?

If not then you've got somthing hiding on your hard disk that pops windows up at you.

If you have, you've got somthing connecting to the net when it feels like it. Try the programs VoG posted links to anyway, they clear most things up. If that doesn't work, try Hijack This from click here
