Looks like malware.
Sounds like you need some adaware-
If you are up to it, run through this document and clean your box

Also try using Mozilla Firefox. I started using it with spyblaster and I haven't gotten anything since. I recommend it to all my friends

Like Soda_Popinsky said, try Ad-Aware. You may then try Spybot: Search and Destroy. (check tutorial for link) Afterwards, check out the "TIPS ON PREVENTING SPYWARE FROM INSTALLING IN THE FIRST PLACE" section on this tutorial: http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=260373

Well it's definitely an ad company. I did a google: "680180.net" the following page was the only entry.
By the looks of the web site, it may not be malware, but something you subscribed to either intentionally or in most cases, non-intentionally. Go to the web site and take a look. Ask other folks in your house if they did.
But regardless, if it's a popup that keeps coming up you can get pop-up stoppers or switch to another browser that doesn't allow popups to see if it shows up on that browser.
If it is the homepage when you start up your browser, and you didn't make it the startup page, then it could also be the ole browser hijack.
Soda_Popinsky has provided us with some good insight on getting rid of hijacks -
anyway, let us know.
Connection refused, try again later.
