You know...that sounds like a damn good idea. I'll try that.

EDIT: Didn't work. Trying a patch for WeatherBug.
SECOND EDIT: And that didn't work, either.
THIRD EDIT: Don't tell me it's WeatherBug. I wiped it clean, ran everything I've got, restarted, and got a pop-up within 15 seconds. So I reinstalled. It's NOT WeatherBug.

Alright, well the only thing I still see is
O20 - Winlogon Notify: CSCSettings - C:\WINDOWS\system32\q486lels1hq6.dll
, which according to CastleCops is an Adware called Look2Me.
While looking for ways to remove it, I came across Kill2Me, which is a program made by Merjin. And you can trust Merjin, because you've already used one of his programs, a little thing called HijackThis!.
So click the link, scroll down until you find Kill2Me, download the zip file, and run the executable that is inside it. Restart, and see if that entry listed above is still in HijackThis. If it is, we'll have to try manual removal.

O20 - Winlogon Notify: policies - C:\WINDOWS\system32\dn0u01d9e.dll

So Look2Me reinstalled itself in a different dll. Alright, we're going to have go to a manual uninstall.

Start the computer up in Safe Mode. When it starts up, run Hijack This and remove that entry listed up top.

Open up the Search screen (Start -> Search). When it comes up, click Tools -> Folder Options, click on the View tab, and then make sure that the "Show hidden files and folders" button is highlighted. Hit OK. On the left, click on "All files and folders". In the box that says "All or part of the file name:", type in "msg{*.dll*" (without the quotation marks). The "Look In:" box should say "Local Hard Drives (C:)". Click search.

Here's a screenshot of what the search options should look like:

When it's done searching, hopefully about 17 files will come up. Delete them all.

Now we have to go into the registry. You can really mess stuff up if you do the wrong thing there. So make sure you're deleting the right thing. If you're not sure, it's better to leave it than to delete the wrong thing.

Goto Start -> Run, and type in regedit
The Registry Editor should open.
Click the + sign next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER .
Click the + sign next to SOFTWARE (which is a subcategory of HKEY_CURRENT_USER).
We are looking for a folder called look2me . If you see it, click on it, then choose Edit -> Delete. Say yes to delete it. Restart, and we pray that the problem is fixed. Please oh please oh please.

There were no files found with the search string you gave me, and no folder called "look2me" in the registry.

EDIT: I downloaded and ran Spyware Doctor, and it fixed a whole bunch of things...except whatever's causing the pop-ups.

SECOND EDIT: I downloaded a couple of extensions for Firefox (including the oxymoronically-named Adblock) with no success. I did, however, get directed to Pastebin, which is a site where you can post big, long things, such as my latest HijackThis! scan.

Man, look2me is being really difficult.

It's beyond my capability to figure out how to get that removed.
I would post your HijackThis! log at http://castlecops.com/f67-Hijackthis_Spyware_Viruses_Worms_Trojans_Oh_My.html . There are people more knowledgeable than me who can hopefully help you. Make sure to read the announcement threads and go through their MRP Procedure first. Hopefully they can help you.

Good luck.
