Win-Tools / WinFixer Problem That Detectors Won't Detect

I've got a problem similar to the one posted in this thread just a short while ago. AdAware, CW Shredder, Bazooka, Spybot S&D and AVG Anti-Virus (updated versions) all say I'm clean. I still get pop-ups for "related" content while I'm surfing. The majority are for Win-Fixer and try to install the program. I've also seen bra ads, Wal-mart, etc.

I did find and delete two registry entries for Win-Tools as directed by the encyclopedia at Bazooka here. I did not find registry entries for all the places they said I would if Win-Tools were installed.

After that, I haven't been able to detect anything else, but the ads keep coming.

The only suspicious entry in my Add/Remove programs is for MicroStaff WINASPI. The remove function on it will not work and I have no idea what it is.

Thanks for any help you can give. I know you guys have a lot of requests. Bless you.

Here's my Hijack report:
