The one thing I did different however was that whilst my machine was running in safe mode (for executing the smitRem program), I also performed a full scan on all hard-drives with AVG, and a full scan with both Ad-Aware and Spybot.
Unfortunately after rebooting later today I am still finding the same (or very similar) popups related to various other spyware removal tools and AVG regularly pops up saying it has found an infected file, asking me whether to ignore, delete or heal the file.
I am running Windows XP Pro SP2, as mentioned, I run AVG, Spybot and AdAware, further details available if required.
hijackthis log is available on request (I shan't post it here straight away since no-one has asked for it, link deleted by self).
Ill post again if I can find something more specific, or to post the contents of the log if you want me to post them in the thread
