Hi, it would appear i am suffering from the same as a lot of other ppl that post here are suffering.
I have read thru those threads and tried the advice given
alas i still have those damn nasty porn popups.
These are not generated by visiting those dodgy sites but appear at random when i am on forums ( www.tranceaddict.com/forum ) i help run and sites i know well which do not have porn pop ups.

they are only generated thru IE

i have run ad-watch and ad-aware and they picked up a couple of dataminers which are now gone, my firewall prevents dataminers sending out anything anyway.

so i have DLed Hijack This and have the following log

anything in there that suggests a nasty addition to my IE ?

This is still occuring, seems to be mainly happening when you boot up the machine and start surfing.
the first 10 to 15 minutes of surfing brings the pop ups then after that period they stop

Actualy this mcc/telenet thing is fairly new (At lease I'm just starting to see it.) removeal is fairlt straight forward.

1) Right-click on the taskbar at the bottom of the screen and select "Task Manager".
2) Select the tab marked "Processes".
3) Under the "Image Name" select the process for "mcc.exe"
4) With mcc.exe highlighted click "End Process"
5) Close Task Manager.
6) Click on the start>Run> type "regedit" (no quotes
7) Navigate to the registry setting for "hkey_current_user\software\media codecs" and delete the whole registry key.
8) Navigate to "hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run" and delete the registry value associated with mcc.exe

Now continue on with the rest of the Hijack This log
Move HijackThis to it's own, permanent folder such as c:\HJT\HijackThis.exe <-----Very important; needed to keep/maintain backups in

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del and 'end task' on any of the follow that are present

Put a check next to these in hijackthis:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Multimedia Codecs] C:\WINNT\system32\mcc.exe


Make sure you are set to Show Hidden Files and Folders and delete the following files/folders:-
Delete files/folder from the following directories (But not the directory itself, for example delete all files/folder IN temp; but not temp itself!)
[*]C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temp\
[*]C:\Documents and Settings\<All other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temp\
[*]C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\ <---This will delete your internet cache--including cookies. This is recommended and strongly suggested.
[*]C:\Documents and Settings\<All other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\
[*]Empty your "Recycle Bin"

Then Reboot and post a fresh log back to this thread.
