Default How do I get rid of it????

So I have this thing on my computer, coupondropdown. It underlines words on websites I visit, and it puts horrible, disgusting ads for weight loss on my yahoo mail, and other random ads on other websites I'm on. I have run antivirus software, antimalware software, I have looked for malware programs in my program files, and it WON'T GO AWAY. Anyone have any suggestions?

Have you tried going through the add/delete programs in your control panel? Or maybe it's an add-on to your browser, so I think you have to delete the add-on from your browser's tools, or options, or something.

Looks like a browser extension.

Find where the extensions are listed for your browser and get rid of pretty much anything you have not installed purposely. Looks like it goes buy a number of names.

Not sure if this would help - I have noscript as an add on on firefox. It pretty much blocks every pop-up. You can enable certian websites though that actually use pop-ups that aren't gross.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

What browser do you use? What antivirus program? And what antimalware?
