    get Ad-Aware SE Personal
    http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

    it will detect most of the adware/spyware.

    also use Hijackthis to check if there is still something installed.

    NIS is not setup by default to block pop-ups. Of which, what version is it that you are running? So unless, you have never before checked the control panel after installing it, odds are likely that this function of the firewall is "turned off". And if memory serves, some versions of NAV are also not setup by default to catch ad/spyware (by default, I am referring to the settings and system options in place directly after the first install). You would have to check this out as well.
