"www.1861.sh" popup

Anyone know how to get rid of "www.1861.sh" site from popping up? It appears to be a Chinese ringtone sales site. I can't get rid of it, none of my spyware utilities sees it (Counterspy, Spyware Doctor, Hijackthis, Spybot, Ad Aware).

I have added it to Restricted Sites in IE but it still pops up every 1/2 hour or so.

I have since set IE to block all popups and have reset all IE security levels to their default position. We'll see how that works.

Anyone else been annoyed by this 1861.sh site??

Thanks

Let's look at your hiackthis log, don't fix anything though, I'd like to see what entries are there.

It's all good. I uploaded and it checked out OK. The site seems harless enough. It seems to come from a large telecom company in China.

I figured it out.

In the Windows\System32 folder I found and deleted the following files:

STHU1.EXE, STHU2.EXE, STHU3.EXE, D3802E40.DLL, D3802E40.EXE and D3802E40T.EXE

The DLL file I used Killbox to remove on reboot.

No popup of 'www.1861.sh' since then.
