Popups in IE when using Firefox

  1. I was hit with an adware virus on November 24th. I've read a number of forums about similar issues, installed HijackThis and ComboFix and started trying to do some self-diagnosis. I deleted all the suspicious-looking files that were created on November 24th, but I'm still getting barraded by pop-ups in IE windows when I'm surfing the net on Firefox. I've attached my ComboFix and HijackThis logs hoping someone can provide some guidance with what I should do to eliminate this problem. As a sidenote, the two files that ComboFix attempted to delete show up every time I run ComboFix, so something keeps bringing them back. Thanks!
