How do I get rid of sr.adwave.com popups?

We have been getting crap from the above-mentioned for a while now, advertising everything and anything. Since the windows appear from thin air, I suspect a mild virus is responsible. Any suggestions?

Also, why does a computer become loud sometimes, as if it is straining? I can understand this happening if it is overburdened with simultaneous downloads, but it often occurs for no apparent reason.

Search for a program called AdAware 6.
