Default The program "Power Scan'

I dont know how but i got this on my computer... and everytime i startup it displays like a big pop-up... like saying 'do you want to scan your computer' it sais its like for deleting porn files of your computer er sumthen... its like 'Dont get caught with porn on your PC' er sumthen like that and ive bin dying to figure out were the f**k this program came from... i cant find any files about it in the 'Start menu > Program Files' its not listen on thier... and i cant seem to find anything to do with it in my C:/program files... and i ran ad-ware and it didnt remove it er anything... so i was just wondering if any of u guys have had the same problem with this program? or if you know how to fix it?
