We will assist you in eliminating this nasty adware.  To begin, please download Malwarebytes from here and install it then once it opens, navigate to Settings>Protection and under Scan Options toggle the Scan for rootkits option to On then return to the Dashboard tab and click on the Scan Now button.  Malwarebytes will proceed to update and scan your system for threats.  Once the scan completes, have Malwarebytes remove any threats that it found and allow it to restart your system if prompted to do so to complete the removal process.

If Malwarebytes didn't detect anything or if the issue isn't fully resolved, then please read and follow the instructions in this topic and create a new thread in the malware removal area including the requested logs and information by clicking here.  One of our malware removal specialists will assist you in checking and cleaning your system as soon as one becomes available.

Additionally, once the threats are cleared up you might consider installing the Malwarebytes browser extension beta.  It is available for Chrome (and other Chromium based browsers like SRWare Iron and Vivaldi) as well as Mozilla Firefox.  It is a great tool for blocking ads, infections, scams, phishing sites, tech support scams/fakealert scams, tracking servers (to protect your privacy) and many other online threats and it is currently available completely free of charge.  If you're interested you can find out more and download it at the following links:


If there is anything else we might assist you with please don't hesitate to ask.
