XP Professional. All the antivirus programs (Malaware, ATF Cleaner, SuperAntispyware, Spy Doctor) worked fine except that once it scanned and removed the infected files/registry keys, and I rebooted, and went back to browse the Internet, the pop-ups would occur again.
But I think I have "fixed" it a dirty way.
I recalled I got "infected" some time late 11/24/08, so I went into the C:\WINDOWS\system32\ and sorted the files by date and found this weird file "iwozajiy.cfg" from the same time that was hidden. I renamed it "iwozajiyxxx.cfg" and the system seems fine now, i.e. no popups and CPU usage is ~4% (while infected, it was using up to 50% consistently).
I will post again if I have more problems.
