For a few weeks now I've been experiencing some very annoying pop-up ads, mostly titled "Powered by Zedo". Sometimes an annoying web page will open which looks like a news website as well. I've run antivirus programs and spyware blockers, to no avail. Below is a current HJT log. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Steve

Thanks, I was unaware of the "managing add-ons" option on IE. I'll let you know if I still have a problem!
