Irritating spyware?

Hey all,

My fiance just got hit by something on her laptop. Web pages begin opening
and advertising some WinAv, VirusHeat, etc. programs. I've run Avast
(free), A2 (free), and Adaware (free) and although they have found items
the incessant web page opening has not stopped.

Is there a good remedy for this? It reminds me of years ago when I got hit
by something that made my browser open to blank:about and I used a shredder
program to remove it.

TIA for any info.

Btw, we are now considering purchasing Kaspersky or Nod32. Anyone have an
opinion on which program is better? Or maybe a third option?

Thanks. I did get it removed. After scouring earlier posts I took a stab at
Superantispyware and it seems to have removed everything that was poppin'
up. :)
