I have picked up a virus of some sort that is redirecting me to other websites in Chrome. How do I get rid of this thing?

I most likely picked this us from surfing through some sketchy *ahem* adult-themed websites. Now when I browse the (non-porn) internet, 25% of the time I'm getting redirected to the same few spammy websites: celebrity-gossip.net, egotvonline.com, and a place called epoclick.com which appears to just be banner ads.
What steps do I take to get rid of this thing? What is the best free spyware removal software these days? What does one do if the spyware removal program doesn't work?
