pagead2.googlesyndication.com MAKING ME NUTS!!!!

I have read many different sites of people complaining of issues related to this pagead2.googlesyndication.com. However, I've yet to find one similar to the problem I'm having. On SOME sites only I get the windows authentication window that pops up: At the top of the window bar it says:
Connect to pagead2.googlesyndication.com
Then the following is underneath:
The server pagead2.googlesyndication.com at device requires a username and password.
Warning: This server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a secure connection).
I end up just hitting the RED X to close it...sometimes it pops back up then I close it again.
I have just about every adware....trojan....virus scanner you can have and have run them all.
I also added the following to the HOSTS file in an effort to block it.
127.0.0.1 pagead2.googlesyndication.com #[Google AdWords]
127.0.0.1 www.pagead2.googlesyndication.com #[Google AdWords]
THIS DIDN'T work either. Don't know what else to try at the moment.
I'm running WIN XP and IE 8
Any thoughts to stop this login window would be greatly appreciated!
