Whenever i visit any website numerous advertisement pop up,even at the background of web page. It is very difficult to navigate new pages of the site as multipe tabs of hidden links appear if I click on some genuine link? I am not understanding what is the problem?

When you visit the Windows Control Panel, Uninstall a Program, I suggest clicking the "Installed on" column heading to group items by date. This can help surface bundle items that snuck on to you computer with something you actually wanted. I would not trust any of them and suggest removing all the ones you did not choose to install.

Note: if you find SearchProtect, make sure to remove that as it will make it difficult to choose your own Firefox settings.
