Eric has now published his additional work on the state of adware detections. The main page is here:

http://www.spywarewarrior.com/elh/adw-state.htm

The other adware programs used are:

180solutions
AskJeeves
Weatherbug
WhenU

12 of the most reputable anti-spyware programs were tested for detections of the adware, but were not tested for removal. The info in the main page explains how the tests were done and I recommend starting there.
