Install the most recent java update (assuming you are using 10.6.8 or Lion) which advertises itself as being able to remove the trojans.
If you don't want to do these installs then at least go to F_Secure's Flashback Removal Tool web page, download their Flashback trojan detection/removal tool, and follow the instructions you find there.
Ads poping up in the browser is usually not a sign of these trojans. But there is at least one "app" that can cause some of this. By any chance did you install MacKeeper?

Well... you could start by looking at the More Like This section to the right of your post.
Or you could look here in Apple support.

Just because the subscription ran out probably won't stop them from pestering you. Did you uninstall it using the link in Klaus1's article I referenced above?
