:-| I have a client that is having a major run-in with this nuisance that pops up with a blank window having just this message:

sendExternalEvent('EVENT:IEBROWSER:www.ad-w-a-r-e.com/callback_ron.php?GUID={42C12A41-165F-11D9-86EB-444553540000}&bidid=5');

I installed AdAware SE, Spybot 1.3, AVG antivirus, scanned with Trend housecall with everything with the most current updates.

In this machine, if you do not click the x immediately in IE when this pops up, or after the 3rd time it does it's pop up, it forces your machine into freeze mode. Later today I am going to install the VX2 Cleaner add-in for the AdAware SE and see if it will catch the monster. I have the HijackThis log below. Could one of the culprits be the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\WMIEXE.EXE line?

Thanks for everything,

Mars

While you are waiting to hear on your log, you should update it to version 1.98.2. The newer version may pick up things that the one you are running does not. :)
