Most anti-virus applications do not detect adware. There are several good, free, programs that will get rid of most of the gunk:

Ad-awareSE from Lavasoft, and Spybot Search and Destroy are both highly thought of here. Download these and update their defintions and let them clean your computer.

Cheers,
John
