Spyware problems

Alright I've run ad-aware, and spy sweeper but I still have popups hijacking dfwstangs everytime I go to it and hijacking my google search results. Oh and the crap highlights key words and makes them links to car sales, or insurance, or pills etc. Any ideas how to get rid of this crap if I've already run two well known spyware sweepers...

SpyBot has worked for me when AdAware couldn't.

Just go through the add/remove programs in the control panel. Remove anything you don't recognize.
