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.

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

Ugh, I downloaded Windows Live and got a horrible add-on program too. I uninstalled from my computer programs in the control panel, and then had to disable it in the extensions for my browsers too.

I am using Firefox and I did look through my program files to see if there were any I could delete, and I also looked through my extensions and add ons, and I found no clues. I didn't not try clearing cookies, etc. I use AVG Free for my virus protection and Malwarebytes for anti-malware. Both programs found issues which I deleted, but it did not affect these ads.

I did install an add-on for Firefox called Flashblock which blocks all flash that is on web pages (if It happens to be flash I want to see, I just click the play button) so at least the ads are blocked now.
