Where Did These Unwanted Desktop Shortcuts Come From and How Do I Get Rid of Them?

okay, just the other day, i noticed 2 new shortcuts on my desktop, that say “Computer Paycheck” and “Play Now”. in the properties, they say they’re internet shortcuts to http://www.gg2su-mk2sv.com/ads/survey/01.html and http://67.18.42.226/~adtrack/banners/exit.php?z_id=613&ban, respectively. now, i know these are probably some sort of adware, and i know i could just delete them, one by one. but i was wondering if they’re signs of whole programs or registry keys i should try to get rid of. since their names aren’t really specific, i didn’t figure i could find any info on the bazooka adware site.
