                This usually is a Detection given by McAfee and has different variations. There are different Removal Guides to suggest, However basically use the same Reliable/Reputable Tools. So I will basically suggest you run each.

1- McAfee Stinger (Read How to Use)

2- Malwarebytes (Free) To keep it Free DO NOT accept or enable any Free Trial Offers/or Activate the Paid or Pro Version. The Free Version will suffice.

3- AdwCleaner

4- Junkware Removal Tool

             You can obtain these Superb (Free) Tools and more from Here:

            You are better served if saving these programs to your Desktop, and closing all applications/To include Browser before scanning. Go to your saved folder and Open/Install/Run. Follow Guidelines/Instructions, as generally you have to do a restart to remove all remnants entirely.

              To get a better understanding of how these PUPS arrived on your system, You may find these two articles most informative:
