Adware that won't uninstall

I have a couple adware's that wormed their way into my PC. When I go in to remove them from the Add/Remove window the PC "thinks" for a second and the adware doesn't disappear. These popups are drivingg me nuts, how do I get rid of this crap?

I was dicking with a computer at work today that had some serious popup problems. As soon as I opened IE, about 7 popup opened. That shit should be illegal.

I got a program called Ad-a-ware (I think) and ran that program. Seems to have solved the problem, but I had to run and reboot about 3 times.

I'll look tomorrow to check what the program was called.

They have spyware programs now that uninstall or "disable" programs, ad-aware or spybot from running. Look4me and some others do this.
