I had the Surf Sidekick 3 on my computer and thanks to this site I was able to remove is successfully!
But I still get random pop ups. .. and I notice that on web pages, random words will be double-underlined as a link, and if clicked it takes me to an add. Are these double underlines from people who put them on their page for funding? Or is that another spyware issue? Also, could I have more spywares than Surf because of the pop ups continuing?

I get 'em, too. Unfortunately, it's the web pages, not your PC, which is why it doesn't happen on all sites.

Info here.

Download Firefox and then get the extension "Adblock", which according to the article linked above stops it.
