I have a backup of my OS partition, and I'm currently restoring it. Otherwise, I'd be having a great deal of trouble trying to remove this type of virus.

I'm not sure what version of Sun Java JRE I had, since I restored my previous backup, which doesn't have any Java installed, but it must have been an older, exploitable one.
If it is an ad-server, it's also the infection is only associated with just one ad, and requires the viewer to have a specific version of Sun Java JRE installed in order to get infected.

Cheathappens is very clean, most likely it was another site you got problems from.

Doing a web search for "popup trojan pointroll", I've already found numerous hits. Pointroll is one of the ad-servers here.

That's funny! I am already finding myself addicted to this site on my down time. It's like trying to eat only 1 potato chip.
