In addition to Ad-AwareSE, you should use Spybot Search and Destroy as well; one will often find something the other misses. Be sure both applications have their definitions updated, and run both in safe mode.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Hello matp

Try scanning with ewido anti-malware, its one of the better malware scanners and picks most things up!

After you have downloaded and installed, please run an update to make sure you have the latest definitions. After you have updated, reboot the computer into safe mode by hitting the F8 key just as your PC loads up. Once loaded, (it will look different) run a scan with ewido, once done , restart you PC normally.

Download Ewido Anti-Spyware v4.0 from here.
Then print out the Ewido Install and Scan Instructions.

Use it in safe mode after performing the scans as ssuggested by jgweed.
