Angry Spyware and adware!!!

These stuff are spamming onto my computer with text highlights, searchbars, and executables. I've tried using spybot and ad-aware but all fails. Any recommendations before doing a os reinstallation? Will system restore also help with this problem?

Make sure your versions are up to date with those programs.
