Here are the first 2 steps, there will be more steps needed, after I see the results of these logs.

Run them in this order.

Step 1: Run AdwCleaner
Author's site
Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click Scan
In the results tabs, uncheck anything you don't want to remove.
Click on Cleaning.
Confirm each time with Ok.
Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
Please Copy & Paste the contents of that logfile with your next answer.
You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

Step 2: Run Junkware Removal Tool
Malwarebytes Acquires Junkware Removal Tool
Download Junkware Removal Tool onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.
Warning! Once the scan is complete JRT will shut down your browser with NO warning.
Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
Temporarily disable your antivirus and any antispyware real time protection before performing a scan.
Click this link to see a list of security programs that should be disabled and how to disable them.
Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7/8, right-click JRT and select Run as Administrator.
The tool will open and start scanning your system.
Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved onto your Desktop and will automatically open.
Copy and Paste the contents of the JRT.txt log please.

I had this horrible adware too and tried all the solutions I could find through Google but still didn't get rid of it. Eventually I downloaded a free copy of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (for Mac). Ran it, deleted all the suggested files (one click for about a dozen files), and bingo! -- job done.

I believe I acquired the nasty adware when I downloaded something else and foolishly clicked through all the preliminary screens agreeing to things without reading what I was agreeing to.

If you choose to download the Malwarebytes product you may hit the snag that I did. When transferring the program to the applications folder, the program wound up in the device folder for the download, and I had to manually transfer it into the Mac's own applications folder.

Disclaimer: I have absolutely no connection with Malwarebytes.
