i've done just about everything i can think of to get rid of it, but can't seem to figure out what's actually causing all of these IE pop-ups. they generally occur when i open a new tab in firefox, or go to a different website when i'm surfing the web. it'd be only seriously annoying, but half of the popups fail to resolve the URL they're pointed at, and then cascade open 40-50 IE windows, which results in my computer crashing. at this point, i don't have any clue what could be doing it. any help would be really appreciated.

edit: this might help. this site keeps on popping up when i open new webpages. for example, i went to check a fantasy baseball league and i got this: http://url.cpvfeed.c...stingId=6363396

i can't find anything useful on cpvfeed, though, or how to remove it/what it runs as.

oh, and another thing that's an issue: for some reason i keep getting ads/radio/tv program audio without any apparently open program. it's freakin' weird, and makes it impossible to use ITunes and whatnot.
