I have had some pop-up problems, from other sites, but I can understand your frustration, always having to scan your computer. I suggest clicking the button up on your tool bar that says block pop ups. Maybe that can help. Or another idea is puttting a password on your user account on your computer

What is burstnet.com? That is who was attempting to intrude on your computer. I have never been to that site, so I don't know what kind of site it is.

The thing about Norton (on mine at least) is that when I run a full system scan, it doesn't catch any hacks. I found a bunch of hijack attempts (from Gamehouse.com, don't download any games or game trials from there) on Adaware that Norton told me nothing about. I'm going to ask my mom if I can download the newest version. Anyway, I would clear any cookies that you have on your computer, and do an Adaware Scan.

I just flagged this thread to have the mods and admins look into this. If WI is tied to this burstnet.com and it is something that can harm your computer, then Justin needs to look into it.

That is the point of adware, you do not give it permission to run on your computer.

I recommend running a scan weekly of your computer. I know many programs that you can pick a time and day, and it will do it automatically.
