If the online scan didn't work, then you can download other antivirus softwares such as AlYac (it's South Korean, but I find it extremely useful). Also, does the advertisement affect your Internet and desktop (weird shortcuts, new homepage, slower connection)? The antivirus99 problem is probably a Rogue adware...

instruction on its use .
* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* At the end, be sure to checkmark the Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.

Tried removing an annoying popup from my system for ages. Finally www.search-and-destroy.com removed the popup for good. A free scan afterwards found and removed hundreds of Trojans and spyware.

thats good to hear ,glad you had success ,But i have never heard of search and destroy,I have heard of Spybot search and destroy ,and i don't have an old computer to try it on right now.
how much did they charge you to remove the trojans ! is it totally free!

What is Search and Destroy?

Search and Destroy is another in a long list of fake "spyware removal programs". Most of these infect computers when you are required to download an infected codec program to watch a video online or you may have been attacked by a drive-by installation. In any case, the program "Search and Destroy" tries to use a name similar to a very popular and useful removal tool called Spybot Search and Destroy. It installs on your computer, then proceeds to run a scan and show you a variety of infections that need to be removed. The only problem is my test computer was completely clean of spyware, adware, viruses and other issues when I downloaded and installed Search and Destroy.
