This link discusses getting rid of it; and also other similar pests.
They mention adwcleaner, malwarebytes, RKill not the least; and these are "safe" to use and frequently advised here.
You may also need to run (and I would) the Kaspersky Rescue Disk. Donwload the free ISO; burn to a DVD; boot with the DVD. It's a Linux based disk which loads itself into RAM only. It will go online to update itself and then scan the entire hard drive. It can often deal more successfully with pests that can manage to secure/secrete themselves within windows when its booted up.
and this is a more complete "how to re" Kaspersky Rescue Disk:
Whenever you install "anything" downloaded from the web, "never" allow it to install via the Automatic option; "always" use the Manual/Custom potion. Carefully check to see that there are no pre-checked boxes when you instal the app/utility; ensure you have only the box for the item itself and nothing more. That way you avoid installing al manner of "stuff" you neither want nor need. Much of that stuff makes changes to settings various; much of it can be more than that and a real PAI to eradicate... And I suspect you acquired the calling card Hades" via a download/install...
Also if you haven't already; safeguard your personal files regularly by copying to external storage. Typically DVD (a least) but an external hard drive too is nice(r). Regularly check and update the copies too. Why do this copy/safeguard routine? Should you ever be unable to boot up, or otherwise access data on the hard drive, then the bulk of it will be safe elsewhere; and also a more options re' restoring a normal working system.
