Just delete them. They are java script files that have been infected I dont think they are of any importance the pop[1] is part of your user profile I think.
They are safe in the virus vault If you want to leave them there until more advice can be given, Ill llook into it a bit more.

Are there any other symptoms of virus infection?

Not implying you have been visiting these sites but some dodgy MP3, Warez and **** sites are supposed to plce JS files on your computer will all those popup ads.

I've had cookies from MP3 sites I've visited that Ad-Aware picks up as Spyware.

uk_trader, there is a problem. he can't browse the net, but he can use trillian to chat. also he can recieve files through trillian, but can't send them. i haven't had time to get over there and actually see what's going on, so i was trying to gather as much info on possible problems ahead of time. especially seeing as how i won't have access to the net.

sparkster, you're probably right. i've tried and tried to get him to run anti-virus and firewall programs, maybe he will listen now.

Right first off what folders where the files originally in when they where detected?
As he can use trilian he can get a connection to the net so if he uses IE try using another browser like netscape or reinstalling IE.
Also if possible can you find out what programs are runnig at startup using msconfig.
I reckon its more than likely malware or spyware like sparkster says rather than a virus though so delete the files and see if that solves the problem.
