Was MalwareBytes one of the things you tried (see #1 above).

Also try ADWCleaner.

You might need more detailed assistance.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It might be associated with legitimate software you've installed. What are the ads for?

If your malware scans aren't picking anything up you might run hijackthis:

(It's the 'download latest version' link in the upper right.) That will show everything that's loaded or running. Post back the log.

Clean cookies out of browser(s).
Scan with Malwarebytes.
Update to latest Flash Player and Java for the latest security.
Update Browser(s) for the same reason.
Run Windows Update manually for the latest patches and security fixes.
Install Process Explorer from Microsoft, it will show you what processes have activity much better than Task Manager and you can either just stop the process right there or use the info to find the culprit and uninstall if appropriate.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
