Adware wont go away after multiple scans with multiple adware removal tools

Recommended Posts

I have tried HitmanPro and other scanners i cant think off of the top of my head, I have an antivirus called Webroot which removes some of it but i still get ads promoting sketchy antiviruses and fake norton and macafee popups. This all started when i tried to get a version of Sony Vegas Pro for free. It was a stupid move and now i have new tabs open when i click with an ad. Im hoping someone will help me resolve this im tired of it. I even tried a system restore which didint work. Happens on IE, Crome and Edge and makes my homepage for edge and IE MSN. :(Virus2.thumb.PNG.1ba637a7795cc6e12319c95e9ca420b8.PNGvirus3.thumb.PNG.8bcebcaa76e42f65aa09a54ecfe3524d.PNGvirus.thumb.PNG.31855c519e8cfc39efb97f4bc5e4a4cb.PNG

Hello, Welcome to Malwarebytes.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.

I'm not positive but I think These looks like Ads from the notification on the bottom and  right side of some pages.
Next time you see an ad click on the notice on the right of the Taskbar.
If you see a setting wheel open it and change the setting to stop the notifications.
