I would recommend running the McAfee Getsusp Tool first. Please enter your Email Address under "Preferences" before scanning.
Follow up by Running Malwarebytes (Free) then AdwCleaner. I might add to run the Latest McAfee Stinger as well. (Read How to Use)
To keep Malwarebytes(Free) DO NOT enable or accept any Free Trial Offers/or Activate the Pro or Paid Version, all throughout the Download/Installation Process.
You may find the following two articles most informative, as to how these Programs arrived on your system:

It opened 3 tabs in quick succession when I clicked it so that's why I got rid of it. If the OP wants to post a simple obfuscated URL then fine. Just try to make it unclickable please.
The last time something like that happened I had narrowly escaped being held to ransom to get all my files back.
So I didn't want anyone to run that chance. Sorry.
