Have you tried Ad-Aware? I often see it mentioned as catching more adware/malware than other scanners.

I don't like that program, it actually scans your computer and acts as a sort of malware itself.

I haven't used it in about 10 years, I don't think I had any problems with it back then. Pretty sure it only scanned when I asked it to, maybe they've changed their technique.

I just read something the other day about a small number of ISPs injecting ads into pages while you are browsing. I don't have any links to share on this at the moment, but you should be able to find something on it if you search.
