hmm ok what you need to look out for is the program there asking you to download if you find out what program its asking you to download then you can find out what spyware it is and if there is no program that will fix it there is usually a special way to do it,

e.g vundofix

Are the popups coming up before you even launch IE?

if so you probably have a trojan. trojans copy themselves into your windows files. which means you probably will have to reformat
