I would suggest to run McAfee Getsusp first to get it added to the McAfee GTI Data Base. Then I would run AdwCleaner, followed up by Malwarebytes (Free). These Superb Free tools can be found here:Anti-Spyware/Malware & Hijacker Tools
Please add your Email address under "Preferences" before scanning with Getsusp.
To keep Malwarebytes Free, do not enable any Free Trial Offers/Or activate anything.
You may even wish to run the Junkware Removal Tool also , if AdwCleaner does not get it all.
In addition check your Browser(s) for any suspicious Add-ons/Toolbars and clean
your Temporary Internet/Temporary Files/Cache/History.
All the best

Thank you so much for your advice. I followed your advice to a t and was not successful in removing the adware. As it turns out, even though all those programs removed a lot of settings, files and folders from my browsers and I also removed all files and folders in the TEMP folder. Seems it was not a system issue, but a browser issue. The malware had embedded itself within Chrome where none of those removal tools could find it. In the end a clean install of Chrome did the trick although I would have thought that at least one of those tools would have found it. I do appreciate the direction you steered me though as I gained an abundance of knowledge that I didn't have 2 weeks ago, and in the process cleared the rest of my pc of a lot of junk I hadn't realized was there. Thanks again.
