curiositykilledthecat.xyz

I have curiositykilledthecat.xyz virus infecting my PC with frequent annoying pop up adverts, some of which ironically (?) are for McAfee.

I've run a Mcafee scan to no avail.

The advice I've seen is to uninstall the program via my Control Panel but that didn't work.

Please can anyone suggest how to rectify the issue?

Just to add that the program wasn't listed in the Control Panel, ie that's why it didn't work!
