Extremely frustrated with SpyWare/AdWare!

I seem to have acquired some VERY nasty adware/spyware yesterday when I installed WinXP Service Pack 2. I accidentally allowed a popup to install something, and that then left me with two programs (something like WebSearch and VirtualBouncer) installed on my computer. I went to great lengths with uninstalling these programs and running every Adware and AV program I could find. Most of my problems have been solved, but I still periodically get popup windows out of the blue, and periodically new folders of links are added to my IE favorites file that I don't put there.

I have read the forum rules and downloaded HJT. Should I post a log file in the other forum and have someone analyze it? I just have never had a problem with adware that won't go away like this. Ad-Aware has always gotten rid of it in the past. I'm frustrated as all heck!

Anyone help? Thanks!
