    If you're on windows 7 just do a system restore. Removes any recent changes and will take you PC back to b3fore you messed up.

    Go to https://www.malwarebytes.org/ and download the
    free version of Malwarebytes. Then install it and run a scan
    with it.

    PS: Thread moved to the BlackHat Lounge.

    You probably installed an adware extension. Go to extensions in your browser and remove all of them. Restart browser.
