      No internet access? You’ve run all the spyware removal tools? Using a popup blocker?

      Take it to a good PC Tech.

      you can try removing all of the objects in IE. Also, you can browse the registry (only if you know what you are doing) under explorer and IE to help find the culprit.
      If you are not very familiar with the windows registry DO NOT attemp to alter anything in there, take it to a technician.

      You got infected by installing Messenger Plus! that is loaded with the LOP.COM hijack.
      Reboot to safe mode, go to Add/Remove programs and remove it,
      Would be worthy of posting HJT log and removing the rest of the crap you get by downloading that ,
