Since you've infected yourself with adware, most likely by allowing it to sneak in during downloads by not paying close attention to what you were clicking, I would also run - Downloads.

After cleaning up what it finds, reboot and go into your Browser Tools, under Add-Ons remove any other than Flash Player, PDF reader web helper, Windows Media Player or Quicktime plug-in, Java and Silverlight.

In Control Panel>Programs and Features uninstall any search services, toolbars, or anything else you don't recognize and when you open it from Start>All Programs know you don't use. Use only the stable search box built into your browser.

When you download anything from the web, during install read the fine print that nothing is being sneaked in, as this is how most spyware and adware gets loaded.

Another great tool.
Download AdwCleaner 2.100 Free - Adware and toolbar remover - Softpedia
As Greg and others have pointed out. You must watch what you download and thing you add to your browsers.
