I think you'll see why you're not finding it by looking for "CouponDropDown".

It's not a useful plugin or malware but very bad adware, so it's best if you just remove it rather than have a program that is in the gray area in terms of security. I read about it here: http://www.shouldiremoveit.com/CouponDropDown-28735-program.aspx

Because it is not necessary malicious (other then displaying ads) most AV programs will not detect it. Unfortunately there are not too many adware removers that will take care of it so it will need to be done manually for the most part. That site above has some basic recommendations how to do it.
