I'm speaking of the rather persistent adware, not the perennial financial condition. 
I tried the "control panel/uninstall program route, which made it invisible in my programs list, but still not gone from my life. I've installed emsisoft,  which fixed a great many things, but not this one. 
 
Another rather obstreperous little b@$t@rd of a program is the one that opens a new tab, and initially has a label like "cdncache.a-akamail..." the rest I can't capture. THEN is changes to some other address, usually ransomware.
 
And I have no idea of what I just did to my computer, but there are little yellow spaces between the words in the above two paragraphs. 
 
Mayday, mayday...
