Default pop-ups

Lately I've been getting pop-up windows titled either "ss" or sixyt-six and something like popstopper coming up on my screen. I've run Nortons a/v and spybot s&d but those havent stopped it.
Also, in msconfig I've unchecked these, clicked apply, ok, and restarted my computer but they come back.
Also, how can I get Items like these plus others from being listed as possible start-up items? How can I delete them?
Thanks

try running the file names through the search for files and delete anything that looks sus and any temp files if it gets out of control and happens too often try saving your important things to disk and reinstall windows

ok get rid of ME for one and don't worry bout the microsoft spyware most free spyware sweepers will do. i have spy sweeper and it works just fine, any spyware or adware it finds it and quaratines it and deletes other traces.
