problem with pop-ups

Question

We are having a problem with pop-ups. We have installed Ad-ware and spybot but are still getting pop ups. Immediatly after we run spybot, a pop up comes up. If I walk away from the computer and come back 10 minutes later, my entire screen is covered 6 deep. We only have this problem on one user out of three on XP. The other two are fine. Most pop ups are the Stop Spam or Stop pop up adds. We have enabled the firewall in Xp also.

Please help-this is driving up crazy (while writing this question, 3 adds popped up)!!!

Make that 4.

Thank you, Laura
