try scanning in safemode and if result is the same, Go to Add/Remove programs in Control Panel and check for the following. AdwareAlert, if found, uninstall.
Also, could try download of the trial
version of Ewido Security Suite here:
http://www.ewido.net/en/download/

Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Again run in safemode. Its step by step process of removal. If it detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select 'none' as the action. don't select 'Perform action on all infections' as it will remove auto.

After scan, clear temp files, (and cookies) any files left in registry will need a cleaner. hope this helps,

You may have a rootkit, a nasty virus which hides itself really well !

Stop using IE as your default browser but more importantly disable Windows Messenger.

In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
On the General tab, click Settings, and then click View files.
Select the cookie you want to delete, and then, on the File menu, click Delete.
To delete all of the cookies on your computer, click Delete Cookies on the General tab.

or removed as in the link,

Have you disabled Windows Messenger? That'll probably stop them.

In case you're a little confused about windows messenger this page will tell you a few of its problems and how to disable it. Unless you use it to send messages yourself it's better of disabled even if the Casino pop-up is not using it.

BTW Windows Messenger should not be confused with MSN Messenger it is an entirely different program.

Cheers petersmyth1, i already had it disabled. Would you recomend me to use zonealarm as iam only using windows firewall?

I'd recommend you using any firewall as long as it wasn't the SP2 windows one. That one only protects against incoming no noes. The rest will allow you to block anything unofficially in your PC gaining access to the net at your command. eg Tracking cookies, Premium diallers etc but the Window's one won't even ask you to OK them.

Wondered if you have adblock added to Firefox. it allows you to filter web ads with a single mouse click. As you have Firefox, you can install Adblock here, i needed.

I agree with peter;-) yes, use zonealarm and see how that goes.

Right-click on an ad and select "AdBlock ..." from the context menu. you can alter the address that will be blocked, or use, * (wildcards)to block content. also, click AdBlock in your Firefox status panel and select from the list of blockable elements.
