I second this answer as I've used Spybot Search and Destroy, and it's a great program that works wonderfully. I highly advise it.
Well there is tonsYou are infected with spyware if:

* You see too much pop-up advertisements.
* Your browser has toolbars that you haven't installed.
* Your homepage has changed (and you can't change it back).
* Other settings have changed without your permission.
* Your computer is slow.

To get rid of spyware and keep your computer clean you can use an antispyware or even more.
You can download a antispyware software. There are 10 good anti-spywares.

I have AVG and I keep it updated
Then Do CCleaner or the other free programs in the list

CC cleaner works well too, but I'd use Spybot over CC.
I went back and reset my computer to an earlier date. I had some spyware pop up on mine too. It works fine now.

That would just be a coincidence, and turning back the date on your computer could cause some software conflicts with certain programs. Just download CC Cleaner, Spybot Search and Destroy, AVG Anti-Virus, Avast Anti-Virus, or Clam-AV.
I don't have a virus scanner cause i know what im downloading.
But i have CCleaner just in case

Malwarebytes is free and is one of the top rated. The free version is an on demand scanner but the detection rates are incredible.

Keep your PC disconnected from the Internet, and don't use it until you're ready to clean your PC. If you think your PC may have a malware infection, boot your PC into Microsoft's Safe Mode.
To boot into Windows Safe Mode, first shut down your PC. Locate the F8 key on your PC's keyboard; turn the PC on; and as soon as you see anything on the screen, press the F8 key repeatedly. This should bring up the Advanced Boot Options menu; there, select Safe Mode with Networking and press Enter.
Delete your temporary files and now you're ready to run a virus scan running a scanner is enough to remove most infections.
If you already had an antivirus active on your computer, you should use a different scanner for this malware check, since your current antivirus software may have not detected the malware.
Malware infections can damage Windows system files and other settings. Before launching your Web browser, check your homepage and connection settings.
Recover your files if windows is corrupt and keep your PC clean. If you want to protect your PC more you can search AskPCtechies for spyware removal software. Hope this will help you.
