I've recently contracted an adware type virus. It give me an internet explorer pop up every 15 minutes.
Anybody know how to remove it? (already tried Malwarebytes and Lavasoft)

Try other antivirus software, if that does not work try ComboFix.

IMO it's possible, but not without losing some functions, since IE is integrated into Explorer. Maybe you should download IE8

BTW, have you noticed any changes after you used ComboFix? After I used Combofix to get rid of a trojan, the balloons won't show, and some taskbar icons won't show after startup.

A program I recently discovered that has worked wonders for several of my clients PCs is MalwareBytes. You can get it here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/

Good luck!

The popups of this nature are almost ALWAYS due to a Browser Helper Object (BHO). It is a plugin type for Explorer (not necessarily IE), which hides the fact that it is executing (because it belongs to the Explorer.exe process, you won't see any indicators in taskman).

Get Hijackthis. Backup your settings before commiting any changes, but pretty much, in Hijackthis, if there are any entries you even THINK shouldnt be there, remove them.
