I am the author of Super Ad Blocker with SUPERAntiSpyware. It will
detect and remove this problem - we have seen this many times:
Super Ad Blocker offers a fully functional 15-day trial. You can scan
and clean your computer and then remove Super Ad Blocker if you do not
wish to keep it.
You may wish to perform your scan in Safe Mode - we have a free tool
called BootSafe to make that process easier.
