Found 2nd May 2008
Just noticed last few days, that i keep getting a strange pop-up when browsing on the net. Reinstalled Firefox twice and even done a new install of Opera. The Pop-up is its on seperate instance, dragable and opens up to yahoo search. Already run CCcleaner, Spybor S&D, and Avast hasnt spotted anything.

Any Ideas?

Try AVG - its free and gets better results than many of the paid for ones.

Make sure you download it from Grisoft (just google AVG):thumbsup:

Get Ad-Aware as already mentioned but also get Spybot.

If you have a lot of spyware on there then the best thing to do I'm afraid is to reformat the PC. The reason being is that if you have loads and if you delete it, then chances are it'll come back and will be even worse.

Do backup your data when you can too just to be on the safe side if suddenly you can no longer get into Windows etc.

Try Spysweeper trial. It gives you 15 days full use from memory. Worth the money. Check out forums for codes and you can get it for under a tenner.
