Since you have already tried AdAware and such you will have to remove it manually. Download a copy of Hijack This! located here: http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip

Run it and click "Scan". It will bring up a list of your running processes and other addons installed into your browser (such as adware).

Click the button "Save Log", save this text file somewhere like the desktop. Open that log file and paste the contents here. I will let you know what you need to remove.

Thanks for your concern Tick the boxes next to the lines that I highlighted red (be careful doing this) and click "Fix Checked".
Reboot your PC and see if popups are still spawning.

Question, Do you have two system32 folders in your C:\Windows directory (you may need to show hidden files and folders), one starting with lowercase "s" and the other starting with an uppercase "S"?

Im concerned about this line, I believe the Second svchost.exe might be fake as one is in the folder "system32" and other other is in "System32" even though it SHOULD be the same process

C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe

Other than wweb32.exe (which im not sure what it is), everything else seems to be normal. Have you done a full virus scan with AVG?

wweb.32: does it stand for wordweb(online dictionary). i use AVG to do online scaning at least once per week.thanks

Just had a thought. Can you list the processes running on your PC using something like Process Explorer (http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/ProcessExplorer.html) ?
Although Hijack This! lists most of the processes that are running already and also any registry entries that are told to run programs on bootup. Often malware is launched by other ways such as attached to a DLL when IE starts up or in other locations of the registry. I noticed this the other day on a PC repair job with trojan/malware called mssearchnet.exe which would hide from Hijackthis!
