I have Nortan AntiVirus installed on my computer but I can't get rid of the popups and spyware ads. They are annoying and that trojan icon and red circle is question mark in it won't go away. What can I do?

Use the instructions in the link below for using Smitfraudfix.

also suggest you followup with the instructions below.
Turn off system restore. This will remove all restore points since some are infected and will make scanning quicker. Turn system restore back on after you are malware free.

Remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. by using Ccleaner. Do not use "Advanced Settings" or the "Issues" button. Use only the default settings. This will make your scans faster. Run the cleaner again after you are malware free.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
