I tried to torrent a program I need for school on my mac (verison 10.7.5) but it didn't work. Unfortunately what DID work was the sneaky adware called Deal Top that installed itself on both chrome and safari! 

It double underlines all these random words on EVERY web page and turns them into links for stupid stuff that the words relate to. I've tried everything to remove it. I've deleted all my browser "extensions" for both browsers, reset both browsers, and ran crapcleaner as well and removed everything it said to remove. I looked for it in a general search in my programs and found nothing. I deleted and uninstalled the original program it came in and THEN emptied my garbage. I've tried to get multiple adware cleaners but they either are for windows only or don't work with my version of mac anymore because it is too old. 

Nothing has worked. I've been at this all afternoon. How do I get this off my computer??

You'll have to upgrade your OS to 10.8 to use it but that's not a big deal. 

I've learned blood is not thicker than money.

You might check the installed Extensions in Safari and Chrome.  On the Mac, many times adware in browser is done by way of an extension that is installed.  Uninstall any extensions that you did not install yourself or you don't recognize and see if that helps.

Try running Malwarebytes or there is another program in the App Store call Bitdefender Virus Scanner
