Solved Ad by Priceless says I have won a Prize?

I have a nasty little problem in the form of an ad that appears on my screen at random. I have no idea of the source except that I occasionally get an ad for a complete Windows clean. Needless to say I never click on these invitations. I have used JRT, Windows Defender and Malwarebytes but they find nothing at all.

Here is a link to a screenshot and hopefully someone will recognise it:

Any and all help will be welcome and acknowledged.

btk1w1... thank you for your help and the link which was a great help. I subsequently discovered that an entry had been made in Options under Extensions. How t got there I have no idea, probably on the back of someting I have downloaded (I must be more careful). Anyway I uninstalled it from there and the PC is now clear.

Thank you and your help is very much appreciated.
